What are your general comments?

"I showed up early and slipped into a 2nd year lecture. Interesting that less than 75% of the students tend to go to lecture at one time. Met up with others in lobby. Tour of the school. Lunch in the faculty club. Interviews in the same building as the admissions office. Faculty interview first, then medical student interview. Wandered around the campus and Norris Cancer Hospital until my ride showed up." Report Response
