What are your general comments?

"the day wasn't as disorganized as a lot of previous people have said. two first-years gave us a long tour of the med school and we had lunch together. some people had 2 interviews, some had one. my interviewer made me feel at ease and asked very standard questions based on my application. unfortunately there was no overview to the school or financial aid session by a faculty member, so you have to make sure you ask the students or the interviewer your most important questions."
