What are your general comments?

"Morning presentation and Q&A with 4th years, then a tour (kinda disorganized), lunch with the students, 2 interviews, and then cookies with a chance to talk with other students (mostly 2nd years). Overall it was a good experience. My first interview was the sweetest lady ever. She was obviously very intelligent but kept the interview very conversational. My second interview was also friendly, although he conducted the interview in a more traditional Q&A way, which is a little more stressful. They have a really large clinical skills training center. The students are all very welcoming and seem to enjoy helping each other. " Report Response
