What are your general comments?

"MCO really tries to emphasize its good rapport between the students and faculty. It's pretty evident that the school is very supportive and nurturing. The interview day is designed to be low stress and a chance for interaction. All the med students will tell you to relax for the interviews and that they are generally conversational. However, beware and don't be too relaxed so that you're caught off guard by the typical med school questions." Report Response
