What are your general comments?

"Well, you get there and struggle to find the admissions office. (go straight when you enter the door, up the stairs and straight back) Then you get there sign in, PICK UP A PACKET!!! and head to the back. The supplemental application was not difficult. (Describe your living situation while you grew up, how many people in your high school, would you consider yourself underserved, why howard, why medicine, what field of medicine, Do you eat shit, ok maybe not the last one. But simple stuff) You do not have much room so ''Write small homey!'' Then you sit there through some presentation. They are interesting. Then you go to the CAFE. The food was tasteless. Coming from New Orleans, I felt like it could have been a lot tastier. (XXXX U, X.X.X.X.X.X U), ok that was for my alma mater! Then you head on the tour. Very interesting by the way! Wait I forgot to mention that you visit a class before going to eat. The class was not GREAT but the students have these lap tops that are off the chain check 'em out! After the tour back to the room to wait for interviees to come get you. This is where you start praying, because they pick up packets as they arrive and you better hope you get a good one! Then you take your a$$ home!" Report Response
