What are your general comments?

"I had a really good time at USC. Granted, this was my first interview, so I don't have much of a basis for comparison, but I really enjoyed my visit. Both of my interviews (faculty and med student) were really relaxed and stress-free. Everybody was friendly, and everybody loved being a student at USC. You could tell that stress levels were pretty low, especially for 2nd year students. The food (as everybody says, and I agree) was pretty good. " Report Response
