What are your general comments?

"It started around 8:30 with a brief welcome and the interviews were held right away between 9 and 11. Then we had a presentation about the school which gave us more detailed info about the program, etc. Afterwards we had lunch with about 6 medical students and they were really helpful, you could tell they weren't just trying to "sell" the school to us. Afterwards we got a tour of the school which was neat. I guess the hospital is connected to the med school so it was really convenient. The day ended around 2:15." Report Response
