What are your general comments?

"Another great interview weekend in the Midwest -- plenty of time to talk to students/faculty and explore Madison. There are four formal MD/PhD interviews, but they're all pretty lowkey. In fact, the dress for the interviews was casual! Then there are four to six informal interviews with faculty whose research interests you, so it's a pretty long day. For the most part, they were just interested in hearing about my research and future plans." Report Response
