What are your general comments?

"The students there are awesome, they all love the school so much, and you can really tell. I may have been a bit more exposed to them because I know a lot of people there, and I got to hang out and meet a lot of their friends. The interviewer made me feel really comfortable. He took me on a mini-tour of the hospital, showing me the cardiology area and ICU. He was really nice and laid-back, and looked past the numbers in my file. Overall I loved the school and atmosphere!" Report Response
