What are your general comments?

"be forwarned that the interview time they send you has nothing to do with your actual time. i got an email saying i would have one interview at 1:30, got a letter saying to come at 11:45, and then when i got there was told i had one interview at 1:30 and one at 4:00. (??) most people don't have student interviews, so don't worry about it if you just have one. the second years do interviews and are all studying for boards, so people only have student interviews when they can actually find a second year with time. anyways, the students were all very nice, and the student and faculty interviews were both very helpful. i think i just got a negative impression of the school because i was so tired of the process by that point. after traveling for a whole year, it just becomes annoying when things are unorganized."
