What are your general comments?

"First off before the interview; they have some pretty extensive secondary application requirements (6 letters of recommendation, second personal essay, etc.) that can be a major hassle! Each of the people being interviewed had 2 interviews (one with a fourth year med student and one with a physician or faculty member). My med 4 interview was much less stressful, and more informative, than my faculty interview. Overall, we were treated very well that day by the students, the school is not extremely large so there seemed to be fewer opportunities than larger schools may have. Great place for outdoor recreation!" Report Response
