What are your general comments?

"There were 12 of us and in the begining no one was talking and everyone was just sitting quitely with their heads in the handouts...so I thought this is gonna suck big time.. but then it got better by the end of the day .... we had some Dean give a talk about school...then financial aid .... followed by lunch... the med students were not talking in the begining and then we started opening up a bit....we took extra 15 min for lunch and everything was pushed back 15 minutes.....then some of us had interviews and rest went on a tour.... faculty interview was horrible (there were 2 of them but the one I got was not good...he would talk in half sentences and would want me to complete his sentence and answer as well?????) I heard the other one was more friendly...and 2nd interviewer is a studentt which was awesome..... then we ended our day with a tour ... it went ok but be prepared to give yourself little extra time for finding the admissions office." -Posted 10/28/2004 | Report Response
