What are your general comments?

"Our day began with an orientation session in Gordon Hall that was very conversational in nature, and provided an opportunity to ask any questions we had before the interviews began. Some interviews began in the morning, and some began in the afternoon. Some were on campus, and others were at various hospitals. If your interview was at a distant location (i.e. Mass General), the Office of Admissions arranged to have a cab pick you up, and provided a voucher to pay for the fare. There was plenty of time between interviews to tour the campus, socialize with students, and read a book - I recommend checking out the simulation labs! Overall, it was a great experience!" -Posted 11/04/2006 | Report Response
