What are your general comments?

"My interview was first. It was 1-on-1 with an admissions committee member. Afterwhich there was lunch with 2nd, 3rd and 4th years. We had cold pizza. I think I even had to what for the ice to melt so I could get something to drink. There were not enough beverages for everyone in attendance. However, there was very good discussion about school and life of medical students. The tour was given by 2 1st year students. It was a very informative and fun tour. We went everywhere. AFter the tour the guides gave us their business cards and we had to fill out a survey about the tour. It all took about 3 hours." Report Response
