What are your general comments?

"We signed in; filled out the packet; sat in on a first year class; had a presentation from the head of admissions; got a tour from a second year student; ate luch with the same student; and then waited to be interviewed. While we waited at least 8 people came into the room to talk very candidly about their Howard experience. The students were very honest. The first year students were tired, the second year student was a riot, the third and forth years were very well dressed (we only received visits from male students yum yum), and had a lot of advice on making the right decision about where to attend medical school."
