What are your general comments?

"The day began with a tour of the medical school by three medical students who had just finished exams but were more than happy to show us around. We then went into the atrium of the hospital to eat lunch and afterwards I interviewed with Dr. McCoy. I would definitely suggest scheduling your interview after the lunch and tour. That way you have more of an opportunity to see the school and ask the students questions that you need not ask the interviewer. Also, if you schedule your interview last that will put no time restrictions on the interview. That is why mine was longer than an hour and a half, which was good, because I was accepted."
