What are your general comments?

"Okay, There will be a hostess who will insist that you eat lots of cookies and drink lots of refreshments. She is there to encourage you to socialize so you will "loosen up". Although she does not have an official vote she does report back to the Admissions people so put on your best face and compliment the cookies. They really are good. You to to a meeting where the curriculum and financial aid people let you know what is going on. Then you go to lunch with a med student and the hostess. When you come back three people go tour the school and the other three interview. Wake Forest seemed a little more conservative than the other schools I interviewed at so watch out. Don't be too out there. Also you have to interview for 20 minutes per person and the funny part is at 15 the hostess comes and raps on the door then at 20 she comes back to knock one more time. If she comes back a third time you are "removed" from the room =) so rap it up when you hear the knock they are relentless! Have fun be ready for the cheesy who do you look up to type questions.
