What are your general comments?

"I stayed with a host student, which was an amazing experience - she showed me around the night before, and I went to one of her classes the morning before the interview. The day started at 11, and there was a short session with somebody from admissions, then lunch and a tour with 4th yr Med students, then two interviews. The interview were approx 30 min, with 30 min in between. I happened to have both faculty members, but most people interviewed with one faculty, one med student. The great thing is, they said they'll let us know within two weeks!!!" Report Response
