What are your general comments?

"Everyone was real nice from the very start. The front desk was awesome, the faculty were encouraging an open and honest environment. Lunch was great because its all you can eat. The tour was awesome since during the free time you have you can go anywhere in the building to re-see the things you are most interested in. The interviewers were extremely nice and personable. My student interview was more of a conversation, she had a pharmacology exam in 15 minutes so we had to cut it short. She basically was seeing if I could carry on a conversation. My faculty interview was with a Dr. who had walked across the Golden Gate bridge when it first opened in the 30's. He had a lot of cool stories and made me feel comfortable. He basically went through my stats and had already made a lot of notes on the side. He was funny and real positive. They really know who they are interviewing." Report Response
