What are your general comments?

"Didn't know too much about this school before going, but I really felt like this school was unique when the dean started to describe how they choose applicants for invitation/acceptance. It seems like they really want to get people that are good people rather than only just good students. Their approach to patients in their faculties is also commendable: no one gets denied care. Overall, the attitude of the school, students, and faculty were amazing. The interviews I had were very relaxed and felt just like I was talking to good friends. Wonderful interviewers with great sense of humor - I was pretty lucky, some other applicants had some stressful interviews, but mine were very good." Report Response
