What are your general comments?

"The entire day was very laid back and stress-free. I had my interview early in the morning, and then had time to sit in on a lecture for about an hour before starting the tour. The medical students were really friendly and made a conscious effort to tell you about how great the school is. The tour guides were also very chill and told us how the pass/fail system creates a relaxed atmosphere. The tour itself wasn't very impressive, though. " Report Response
