What are your general comments?

"They had water, coffee and breakfast bars for us when we got there. The guy in charge of us for the day was really cool and laid back. We had a talk from him and then the dean and then we were split into 2 groups. Group A interviewed first while the other group got the FA presentation and the tour. Then B interviewed, then lunch. The interviewers only have your resume and essays for the CCOM application, not your GPA, MCATs, or AACOMAS info." Report Response
