What are your general comments?

"Very good interview experience. My interviewer really made me feel comfortable. The interview was at the hospital which is a 20 minute walk so be prepared. The surrouding aren't the greatest and the school is composed of the dorms and a couple of buildings. Everyone was nice and helpful, especially the admissions staff. Generally a low stress interview, just be prepared to talk about yourself:)" Report Response
