What are your general comments?

"The experience I had in Oregon was amazing. Everything that could have turned out wrong, went way right! I highly recommend taking the time to explore Portland, riding the MAX rail, and staying at the Econolodge. I initially thought that I would have had to walk with my heels, suit, and luggage from the Econolodge (my stay) to my interview that morning. The people at the Econolodge actually called a taxi for us applicants at a cost of $2/person! They saved me the sweat and blisters and got me there on time! During the interview day, students, staff, and interviewers made sure I felt comfortable and invited me to ask any questions. Afterward, I took the MAX (very efficient) and arrived well before my flight departure - it takes approx. 1.5 to 2 hrs. Flight $300, Econolodge $55, Taxi $2, MAX $2, making a pirate impression "Arghhh" during my interview and laughing with my interviewers - Priceless. I am accepted so I guess I did something right :]. I definitely enjoyed my time here, I hope you do too! Good luck. -mvpharm" Report Response
