What are your general comments?

"The day was long! Got there at 7:45 waited around for one last person to get there until about 8:15. The dean talked to us for about a half hour. Toured the clinic and labs around the clinic. Went to do interviews at the clinic. While waiting went in with a 3rd year to see a patient - that was cool. Interviews took FOREVER! They only do 2 at a time and we had I think 9 or 10 people interviewing. Lots of downtime to talk to students, but that was really good to talk to them to get a different perspective on school. After interviews had lunch and went on a VERY long tour. I was really tired by that point and the tour just drug on. Wrapped up with the admission staff and went home around 3." Report Response
