What are your general comments?

"Got there at 8:00am-ish. Very close to the T (orange line) and close to the red line. The day was long but informative. They had a lot of candy and snacks which I liked. The Dean is very young looking (a refreshing change of pace) and very nice. The two interviews were good. The first was with a cardiologist and lasted 25 min. I was the first one done and thought I wasn't getting in! The second was fun and lasted 40 min and the interviewer WANTED to go over and continue our fun conversation, but he had others to interview. Overall a great day. I was accepted 2 weeks later!" Report Response
