What are your general comments?

"Everyone was extremely nice. I arrived on campus and met the other 5 students who were interviewing that day, and the head of admissions sat us down and we discussed the interview day and the school in general for about an hour. We then were led on our tour of the general science building by two first year students. The tour was laid back and informal, we were able to view a significant portion of the building. The gross anatomy lab was not nearly as bad as I was expecting, the smell was not overpowering. Our tour continued with the Johnson City Medical Center. We got a brief tour of the hospital from a third year student and were treated to lunch at the hospital's cafeteria. After lunch the interviews began. Both interviews were laid back and informal, both were geared more toward getting to know me the person, as opposed to me the AMCAS ID number. Overall it was a great experience and I would love to spend my time in med school at Quillen." Report Response
