What are your general comments?

"There was a small group of students during this interview day (three of us). We started the day about 11:00 a.m. We met with the school's dean, who is very nice. Then we had lunch with two second year medical students, and these students also gave us a tour of the medical school. The students really enjoy the school. The school is older, but there are many advantages to going to this school: the school is in the same building as the hospital, the cost of living in Albany is very inexpensive, and the community is great for raising a family. The tuition is high because it is a private school. My first interview was in the hospital, while my second interview was in the admissions office. Both interviewers were very friendly, and asked a lot of questions about my background - know your application well (dates, locations, etc.). My second interviewer asked a lot of ethical questions, so make sure you are prepared. " Report Response
