What are your general comments?

"The interview isn't completely blind, the interviewer gets a summary sheet with your name, schools attended, and lists your activities. There's a scribe service. Everyone with the service has to do a lecture. Everyone goes through the entire body in anatomy. (Some schools have groups do sections and present their findings.) <br> I flew into EWR. Just outside the terminal you can wait for a charter bus ($12) that takes you 1 block away from Grand Central Terminal. From there, you can catch the Harlem North train ($5) to White Plains and catch a cab to the school. approx 1.5 hours, but easy and you save money with farther airport." Report Response
