What are your general comments?

"The experience was extremely laid back. There were 4 other applicants interviewing besides myself. The admissions counselor showed us a video about U of L's strong points. Then, our first interviewer came to pick each of us up. We had a 30 minute one-on-one interview. The first interview was extremely casual. My interviewer hadn't even looked at my file, so the whole conversation was pretty much off-the-cuff. He made me very comfortable. By the middle of the interview, I was laughing so hard at one of his stories that I couldn't catch my breath. My next interview was a little more serious, but still wasn't really intense. Afterward, a group of students gathered all the interviewees together and took us to a small catered lunch (salads & sandwiches). Then, we took a tour of the school, including the library, simulated clinic, study rooms and classrooms. " Report Response
