"The Kenya option, it blew my socks off. However, the news of it was very nice." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The first was a thinker, a philosopher. It was difficult to think in those terms with the news of the first interview. I really had no feel of what he thought of me or the interview. The 2nd, I loved the woman. Absolutely without a doubt loved her. I would like to just talk with her and have her as a mentor for years to come. She also is the director of the student run learning program (PCC) and I was already interested in that track, and now I definately am. The third was a Psychology professor. We talked very well because I also am a Biopsych major. He was very informative ab out the campus and the educational processes. I definately like the idea of a social science department in the medical school. The campus is beautiful, the students seemed to want to talk to us. It really was great. I drove the horrid drive back with a smile." Report Response
