What are your general comments?

"Arrived at 10 am. They called my name and gave me a building and room to go to in order to meet my interviewer. I had a clinician and the interview was very conversational. He had "skimmed" my file, made some notes, and asked me specific questions. Afterwards, we met with the associate dean who explained every detail of their acceptance procedures and answered additional questions that our group had. At noon 2 2nd year med students came to give us a tour and take us to lunch. Afterwards (around 2) we were allowed to leave. Some people will have tours at 2pm so they will go back to the admissions office for their tour. Overall, very positive experience. I was impressed with the facilities and the staff."
