What are your general comments?

"The interview took place at the hospital, which is a couple miles from the pre-clinical classrooms on the Rutgers campus. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and my interviewer was refreshingly informal. It lasted about an hour then all of the students gathered for a video and info session with a rep from admissions. Then we broke off into smaller group tours with 4th year. The student was not there to evaluate us, so it was a chance to ask more candid questions. They also served us lunch (sandwiches) while the applicants chated with each other. " Report Response
