What are your general comments?

"The day went very well. I arrived early so I could leave early. We were all given a short answer questionaire. It was sort of a pain in the butt. After we completed that we toured the gross anatomy lab. Then we had a short presentation. My interview was in the middle of the presentation. My interviewer was very nice, but her english was not that great. So I had some difficulty understanding her questions. I think I did ok though. No real tough questions. I was never really stressed at all. I did get nervous for a few moments when they first called me, but that was about it. After my interview we had lunch at the hospital and then we toured the school and library. The tour guides were very friendly and helpful. It seems like a lot of students at Howard are very supportive of each other. I never sensed a cutthroat attitude. But, I was only there for a few hours. After the tour we had the opportunity to talk to some of the med students. I sort of just quietly slipped out so I could make it home at a reasonable time. " Report Response
