What are your general comments?

"The day started w/ a continental breakfast and coffee/tea. We were greeted by an associate from the Admissions Office and taken to a conference room to discuss the application procedure. Unfortunately, most of the presentation consisted of facts being read off to us, such as how many students applied and were interveiwed over the last few years. We were then taken back to the lobby and interviewed as faculty became available. After two interviews, we met with some students for a quick lunch and tour of the school & hospital. We didn't get to see much, but had the opportunity to ask some more questions." Report Response
