What are your general comments?

"First, let me say that this experience was amazing. The people from Rosemary and Matt in the front to Dean Norstrem in the back were all extremely kind, friendly and helpful. I had two interviews. The interviewers have a copy of the primary and secondary with the transcript, grades, and MCAT removed. Both interviewers had read my file thoroughly, and asked a lot of no-stress questions about things in my folder. The students that I met were all very enthusiastic about their school. I had the chance to observe the students in the anatomy lab, and saw that they worked together closely as a team, and were kind, respectful and friendly towards one another. They all seemed to be very happy - more so than any other school that I have seen. The facilities themselves are all newish, and very nice. The fitness center is breath taking. After the interview, Dean Norstrem tells you the date that you will be considered by the committee so that you know when to start looking in the mailbox. Overall, a great experience.
