What are your general comments?

"I came in the morning at 7:30am. We sort of chatted and snacked for about 15 minutes. We went to a quick presentation held by Erica and Dr. Schwartz. Afterwords, I had my individual interview followed by my 3 on 3 group interview. I dropped into a M1 lecture for a few minutes and then came back for lunch. The interview essentially took up the entire afternoon. Expect a fair amount of downtime in between tasks." -Posted 10/20/2007 | Report Response
