What are your general comments?

"lot of opportunity to explore campus, i really liked the introductory comments by the MD who came to talk to us - he was congenial, funny, and focused on primary care, not what i expected from harvard. md/phd who interviewed me later was more focused on hardcore research, and more enamored with reputation, but he had a point - the school is filled with very smart, and very ambitious people.
