What are your general comments?

"I went to the Oktoberfest celebration the night before the interview and got to talk with some 4th years. The morning of the interview, I got there about 30 minutes early (8:30) and had breakfast and talked with people. There was an hour long introduction to the school. We got lots of information packets. The interviews went pretty well. My first interviewer never stopped talking, though. But they were both very friendly. Then we had lunch with tons of med students. Next was an hour long talk on life at the school and in Dallas. We got to watch some clips from past Senior Videos, which were really funny. Then we went on a tour of the brand new Student Center, which they are very proud of. It was pretty cool. That was it." Report Response
