"The whole day went very smoothly except for the interview. We first had a presentation on the new curriculum, then had lunch with the medical students and a tour. They were all very down to earth and had good things to say of the school. Then had a presentation regarding financial aid (very expensive for out of staters). Then the interview, which was very slow, confusing, and I am completely unsure if it went well or not." Report Response
