What are your general comments?

"Arrive at 7:45am. Go through security. They're hard core about it. Better safe than sorry, I guess. Intro speech. There were 10 interviewees total and we interviewed 2 on 1, closed file, in two groups. We had to read an article and summarize it. Piece of cake. Don't sweat it. When I finished my interview we waited for the second group to finish and compared notes. Then went to a full 2 hour PBL session. Each interviewee went to a different session. Very good program they have here. This is really the cornerstone of the school. After PBL, we had lunch with 2 second years who answered questions...very nice. Next we had a very short fin aid talk and a quick tour. Didn't see the cadaver lab because a class was in there, and didn't see the library just 'cause...but it's probably all electronic anyways. Nice new facility, everyone was friendly. Staff/faculty were lighthearted and joking. Great town. Went to the beach the day before. Warm water, kinda like a lightly heated pool. Stayed at Hampton Inn. Very nice also. Overall very good experience. I like this place alot and I'll be very disappointed if they turn me down." Report Response
