What are your general comments?

"Really positive, the faculty who interviewed me were very friendly and casual, which put me at ease. They didn't grill me or anything and seemed to be enjoying doing interviews (but it's only the first day). I liked the interview workshop and orientation, but it was a pain to have to drive up there twice. We didn't get to see inside a lot of clinical areas (like surgery rooms) because it was the weekend, which was disappointing." Report Response
