What are your general comments?

"There were about forty of us interviewing. The day started about 7:30 a.m., so get up early and arrive early. The parking is in the basement of the school and the admissions office is on the first floor. The day starts out with briefings, which were great. Military medicine is described and we are informed that it is not for everyone. We were given a tour of the school, which is older, but has everything you need. Students are required to wear their dressy uniform or their combat uniform (most prefer to wear the combat uniform). The students are very happy here. 1 in 3 students is married. The student body is diverse. There is a lot of traffic in the D.C. area, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to arrive at the school. Regarding the interviews: my first interviewer asked a lot of questions about military medicine, while my second interviewer focused more on finding out who I am as an individual. Be prepared for questions about the military." Report Response
