What are your general comments?

"at first i was very nervous, but the relaxed and low key atmosphere calmed me down. first there is a brief orientation where they give you a packet of information and tell you where and when you will be interviewing,then there is a tour of the hospital and you are off to your faculty interview. mine was a phd so not all the faculty are md. then there is an hour break and the student interview and then an hour break to wrap up session, which is pretty pointless. they are straightforward in telling you where you are in the process, and open to any questions you might have."
