What are your general comments?

"the day was organized very nicely. we first received an introduction to the school by the admissions director, then went out for our interviews. we each had two interviews with faculty members--one had access to our complete AMCAS file while the other had only our essays. those of us with time between interviews were able to sit in on a class. the day ended with a video of the free clinic and a question-answer period. it was very low stress and a nice day."
