What are your general comments?

"I was contemplating not even showing up for the interview. I'm more traditional and I thought mac would be too progressive and airy-fairy for me. but I learned a lot about the program that I hadn't known before hand (e.g horizontal electives) and the fact is that their program works (i.e. 95%+ pass rate on licensing exam, graduates get competitive residency placements). It's an awesome school and I'd be happy to go there. " Report Response
