What are your general comments?

"Semi-open file interview. They have the 1st page of the UC app + your personal statement. Student interviews on campus, some faculty interviews at the medical center. Tour is in the morning, no other tour after that. I did not go on the tour so I don't know much. Curriculum is standard. Not much in the way of unique things, but students claim they get along (I didn't have much student exposure so it was impossible to tell), and the location is better than I expected. The campus itself is nice, but I did not see facilities. " Report Response
