What are your general comments?

"I had my first inteview at 9am, after which I was given a tour of the neonatal intensive care unit and saw a baby born in the delivery room! Afterwards, I toured the anatomy room, met with the Dean to talk about the admissions process, and had lunch with first and second year students. Then, I had a tour of the medical school facilities, had my second interview, and was going home by 3pm. Overall, a really low stress experience, didn't get any hard ethical questions, and came out really wanting to go here! " Report Response
