What are your general comments?

"Short interview day - doesn't start till after lunchtime, so you're on your own for the morning. Short welcome meeting with Dr. Kennedy & the 13 other interviewees. Then the one-on-ones - one student, one faculty, and a brief meeting with Kennedy that's more to see if there are any application problems. Student interviewer was nice, but seemed like she had somewhere else to be. Faculty interviewer was just a local MD who probably was trying to play "bad cop", but came across as a jerk. Student tour guides then led us around for about 15 minutes then asked "do y'all really want to finish the tour or just go ahead and leave?"." Report Response
