What are your general comments?

"The day was extremely informative, but rather long. They do a very good job of "selling" their school to the prospective students. My interviewer was extremely nice, which made the experience very low stress. The interview was a little bizarre because she spent most of her time giving me tips on how I can sell myself in future interviews to my top choices of med schools. However, she was very persuasive and left me with a very positive view of Jefferson." Report Response
