What are your general comments?

"First interview was with an MSII. We went outside and had a really nice conversation. I was asked mostly about myself and my volunteer experiences. I also got to ask the student many questions about the med school. Second interview was with a Ph.D. He kept coming back to the question about what qualities would make me a good doctor. After answering it twice I had trouble coming up with something new for the third time. Tour was given by the students. The admissions person was very informative about their Admissions Committee and how a decision is made. Also got to sit in on a second-year lecture. It was great, the professor was funny and the atmosphere was relaxed. Facilities at the school are also pretty nice." Report Response
