What are your general comments?

"Brief info session, followed by a tour. Then I had one interview with a retired doctor who actually attended the school (but did not work at it): she specifically said I should not ask her any nitty-gritty questions about the school since I could ask the student. The interview was basically just conversational, no really hard questions. Then I had the student interview over lunch, which was slightly strange since this student will be evaluating you. The student actually asked me much harder questions, such as pushing me on why I want to be a doctor, etc etc. Then I sat in on a class, which was pretty interesting. I was impressed with the school and its technology, not so much with the location." Report Response
