What are your general comments?

"First they talked to us a bit about the school and the curriculum, and then ina span of two hours we all had our two interviews of 1/2 hour each. The interviews were very relaxed and absolutely nothing to worry about. While we waited in between interviews students came in and went on and on about how great Mt sinai is. Then we had lunch (we could get anythign we wanted from teh cafeteria!), and a tour of the school and dorms. Finally we had a tour of highlights in the hospital. Let's just say that even though coming in I was not expecting much after what I saw today I am goign to Mt Sinai if they let me in, despite the expense!" Report Response
