What are your general comments?

"UCSF is a pretty great school. The students all said that they loved it there and were very open to talking to you. After my first interview I sat in on a class and a nice student took me along with her to the problem session (which I recommend sitting in on). The views are amazing and you can't have a better reputation. If it weren't for the blind interviews and the sorta old facilities I would probably love the school even more. " Report Response
