What are your general comments?

"I interviewed in the morning session. After checking in at the admissions office, you are interviewed by two doctors. The interviews are nice because the interviewers pick you up and either take you to your next interview or bring you back to the admissions office. All interviews are conducted on campus. Interviews are very laid back (as is the entire school)... they just want to get a feel for whether you would fit in at Penn State or not. The day concludes with lunch with med students and a tour given by a volunteer. (Those in the afternoon session have a different schedule)" Report Response
