What are your general comments?

"A pretty straightforward day. We began at 10am by sitting around in a lounge while the staff quickly go over the day with interviewees one by one. At 11am, we met with Dean Notestine, a financial aid officer, and a faculty guest speaker, which was a nice touch. At noon, the cool med students came in, had lunch with us, then broke us up into groups for tours. Interviews were held between 1:30pm and I think 3:30pm. Mine was pretty much a question-answer format, less conversational than I would have liked. It was my first interview, and I thought I was a little burned coming out. But I bit it, and exactly a month later, I got a nice big envelope in the mail! " Report Response
