What are your general comments?

"I had a really great time at the interview. It started off with a campus tour and I had a half hour afterwards to poke around before the orientation started. I spoke to some med students, who spoke to me about the professors and their course-load. The orientation part is really boring--sitting around for two hours without a break is tough. Lunch was nice; this is a great opportunity to ask med students about the university. My group was pretty quiet, we were all nervous I guess. The interviews are afterwards. I went in first, but bring reading material just in case. All my questions were standard--no surprises. They really encourage sitting in classes after the interview, the admissions staff will even show you which classroom to go in to." Report Response
