What are your general comments?

"I had a pretty unremarkable experience. The orientation presentation was extremely fast and haphazard. The lady spoke way too fast during the 1 hour presentation.

My student interview occurred over lunch, which I thought was unusual to eat in front of someone interviewing you for admission to medical school." Report Response
