What are your general comments?

"I was very pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed the students, the faculty, the facilities. I got there early, sat in the second year class, went to my interview, which was very informal (he had his feet on the table). The faculty member I got interviewed by was fantastic, we really got along, it was very conversational. Then I went back for the tour and lunch. I skipped the Children's Hospital tour to meet with one of the deans who wanted to see me, which was also very interesting. Overall, it was one of the best interviews that I have been on."
