What are your general comments?

"The whole thing was great. I was pleasantly surprised! The day started out in a group with everyone introducing themselves and something interesting about themselves that makes them unique. Then we had lunch with students, had a few short presentations on financial aid, curriculum and clinical experiences. Then we had 3-one on one interviews. I had an extra meeting with the department of multicultural affairs. The final interview was with the dean of Admissions- an exit interview to look over my file to see if there were any issues that the admissions committee would ask about. When everything was good to go- we all went on a tour of the facilities- including the hospital and anatomy lab. I was very surprised at how much I really like the school- other schools have some competition! Everyone is very friendly, laid back and really want to see you do well." Report Response
