What are your general comments?

"1. Get there early. 2. Make sure to take the initiative and chat/make jokes with your fellow interviewees. There's NOTHING worse than a stuffy room of quiet, anxoius people. Start conversations, and everybody will feel better. 3. I'd suggest bringing a water (though the secretaries are happy to get you some as well), a pack of gum (for after lunch) and a breath spray (for when gum-chewing isn't advisable). 4. You'll watch a brief video, and then be spoken to by one of the Deans of Admissions. This is a good opportunity to ask questions. 5. Next, 2-3 first or second year students will take you on a fairly lengthy tour of the various facilities. Ask to see University Hospital if there's time. If it is a hot part of the year, undertand that you might get a little sweaty. 6. Lunchtime! Try not to spill on yourself! 7. Now, you'll return to the admissions office and wait for interviewers to pick you. Typically, you'll have 3 interviews (PhD's, MD's, and student interviewers). Two are open-file and one is ''blind''. 8. Shake hands, smile, state your case, thank them for their advocacy, and WRITE DOWN THEIR NAMES. It's advisable to send thank you notes ASAP. 9. And you're done!" Report Response
