What are your general comments?

"Met in the admissions office at 9:15 with the other morning interviewers. Got our interviewer information with times (10:00 and 10:45) and location (both within the hospital/med school complex). Had a little bit of time to kill before the 12:00 presentations by admissions and financial aid, which the afternoon interviewees come for as well. Then lunch in the room (which you have to sit hungrily and smell while folks are presenting), followed by a presentation by students, then a tour. " Report Response
