What are your general comments?

"i arrived to the conference room with all the other interviewees to wait for the tour to start. there were about 25 of us there that day. the tour was very comprehensive, except we didn't get to see the anatomy lab or the "robot patient" simulators. lunch was served in a classroom, it was sandwiches and salad, but there was not enough salad for everyone, so if you want some get in the front of the line. we had a short presentation from one of the faculty members and the finacial aid person during lunch, and go the chance to ask more questions of students. then we went back to the conference room and those of us with afternoon interviews waited. i ended up being the last one to interview (even though i was scheduled for 1:45, i didn't go until around 2:15) and was sitting by myself for a while. the interview was very nice and relaxed.
