What are your general comments?

"I arrived at 10am with 4 other applicants. We socialized for 30 minutes and then went into a conference room where they talked about the curriculum, statistics of acceptance and answered our questions. Then financial aid came in and thoroughly depressed us with the money issue (private school $$$). Afterwards we were escorted to lunch with 2 second year medical students. Interviews were with 3 different people from different areas of medicine (dentistry, research and clinical). We were told that the interviews would be conversational in nature and nothing to stress about. However, one of the interviewers decided to grill us on ethical questions. It was unexpected, but we got through it! The other 2 were as promised...conversational. They were all given access to our personal statements, but nothing else in our file. After the hour of interviews was over we took a quick tour of the class rooms and facilities with 2 different second year students. They took us to the anatomy lab where a couple of lab groups were working. It was my first time seeing a cadaver. All students are given laptops and access to a fully functional workout center as part of their tuition. They had a lot of energy and really seemed happy about their choice to attend Wake Forest. I left at 3:45. Overall, it was great. " Report Response
