What are your general comments?

"The day begins at 8:00AM in an elegant conference room with seven other interviewees. We had water, coffee, and a newspaper at our disposal. After a welcome session we were free to converse and/or explore until the time came for our interview...mine was early, thank the stars. Then I was led across the hall to a breakout room where a professor and D.O. interviewed me for 35 minutes exactly. They were kind and offered plenty of smiles. The questions were diverse but did not venture into grades/MCATs. The questions were always specific and not vague. The rest of the day was enjoyable as we were not being judged. Lunch was three star quality and then the day included a tour, curriculum and financial aid presentations. A most fantastic day!" Report Response
