What are your general comments?

"My interview was early and went quickly. Interviews at the U of MN are notorius for being very laid-back and my interviewer told me right away that he would not ask any "trick" questions. Once the interviews were done, the 30 or so of us interviewing that day were given a short presentation about the curriculum and what the school has to offer in general, and then given a quick tour before lunch. The most beneficial aspect of the whole day was how they put all of us together in a waiting room...it seemed restrictive at first, but we were soon all talking and venting our nervousness. Although I didn't really click with my interviewer, it was a positive experience overall. I should also mention that interviewers were given by students (on the adcom), current MDs, doctorate level researchers, and even a retired MD." Report Response
