What are your general comments?

"This was a great interview experience. They have a huge hospital, great facilities and are very welcoming-the office staff in particular. You might have trouble finding the admissions office, but just ask around. Interviews are relaxed, and there is a good chance one will be with a student. No need to be nervous here though, just be confident and know their special curriculum in and out." -Posted 12/05/2003 | Report Response
