What are your general comments?

"This was a really relaxing interview. I had 2 MD interviewers while everyone else had 1. This worked well because the second interviewer was much more receptive than the first and he also told me that I was lucky to have the first interviewer. It made me feel a lot better. The school loves to boast about their new facilities, and they do rightfully so. Everything about this school was really nice. It was a pleasant surprise. I was already interested in this school but now I am even more so." Report Response
