What are your general comments?

"There were about seven of us interviewing. The day started with a presentation by staff. We were given a tour of the facility, then we had lunch. You get interviewed by a medical student during lunch, so be prepared to answer questions and keep a dialogue. The school is crowded as there is such a big class, but the students seem to like the school. There are two teaching styles here (IFM and PIL-read about these). Students in each of the styles are happy with their style and encourage you to go into it. The students and faculty were very friendly here. The interviews were not stressful, they were more interested in getting to know you." Report Response
