What are your general comments?

"Michigan rocks. We arrived at about 7:30 in the morning (6:30 Central time for me). After a quick presentation by one of the deans, half of the students (myself included) had 3 half-hour interviews while the other half went to a computer lab/technology interactive presentation and a financial aid session. My interviewers were extremely friendly and engaging, and the interviews were conversational and not at all stressful. Then the groups switched, and after everyone was interviewed we had lunch with some med students (M2-M4). They were very helpful and and honestly answered our questions. Then we took a tour of the school and hospital facilities - huge and very nice! I actually had fun at my interview - this was a great experience!" Report Response
