What are your general comments?

"Dress in comfortable shoes & relax. Interview day is lengthy but the admissions staff is very accommodating -- they do everything to put you at ease and make it as enjoyable as possible. Grady is an excellent resource as a teaching hospital. Talk to students when they come by the office throughout the day for some interesting perspective. Don't sweat the panel interview style -- can lend itself to awkwardness but isn't something to dread at all. One-on-one was a casual conversation." -Posted 10/24/2009 | Report Response
