What are your general comments?

"I checked in around 8:20 a.m. The Associate Dean for Academic Affairs came to lecture us until just before 9:00. We were broken up into three interview groups -- 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00. I was in the last interview group, so I had 2.5 hours to be nervous. Presentations of the Simulation Lab and the Hippocrates website were given before our group's interview time. A first-year medical student showed our group around campus. Interview was short and sweet -- lots of laughing involved and very conversational in nature. Lunch was served at 12:00 p.m., followed by brief presentations about financial aid and student services. The day concluded at 1:30 p.m." Report Response
