What are your general comments?

"I showed up at the hospital with my map in hand but still couldn't find my way. Finally after asking like 5 people, I found the admissions office. There were only a five other applicants interviewing on that day so it was pretty intimate. After a few presentations and lunch in the hospital cafeteria, you either have your interviews or the tour. In each interview, after 15 minutes, someone comes to knock on the door to signal time is up. Then you go back out to the lobby area and wait for the next interviewer to get done with the other applicant. The day was over at about 3, I think. " Report Response
