What are your general comments?

"This is a great school to interview at. First of all, MCW has the best student-hosting program that I've encountered. The Thursday night before your interview, you attend a social where they feed you (yes!)and you have the opportunity to talk to students. They also show you an informational video and have a q&a session. You get matched up with your host in the end and off you go to get some rest. Interview day is so organized here. Lunch, info session, financial aid, interviews, tour. My interviewers were great! There were no ethical questions and the interview was like a conversation that flowed well. They had obviously done their research and seemed to really want to get to know me as a person. " Report Response
