What are your general comments?

"they give you a free room for one night, it's not fancy but it was very clean and comfortable (with a sink in the room, alarm clock is provided) and in the same building basically as the pizza party and meeting location for the breakfast and tours. Lunch was on real plates and with silverware, no wrapped sandwiches! Go to the pizza party, lots of med students show up and stick around to talk to you. Take the metrolink from the airport (not a cab), it's easy and cheap, it's just hard to find the signs in the airport. arrive during daylight hours so you can explore the area and get a feel for the layout of the buildings nearby.
