What are your general comments?

"Arrived at approx. 9:15 and met with the admissions director. She talked with us for about 45 min. about the curriculum, mainly going over the classes we would take over the next 4 years. Then we were all interviewed. Afterwards, Dr. Wu talked about research opportunities, and then we took a tour of the clinic and part of the campus. The student ambassadors came in next and took us on another tour of the rest of the campus and we ate lunch. We were able to ask them any questions we had at this time as well. Afterwards, we met with the admissions director briefly once more to discuss financial aid, and that was the end of the day!" Report Response
