What are your general comments?

"The interviewees met in a room in the admissions office and were given a presentation by one of the admissions staff about the history of the school, the curricula, and financial aid. We were then given a tour of the school. After the tour we had our faculty interviews. I had to ride a shuttle to the hospital in Philadelphia, where I met my interviewer. The interview was very relaxed and conversational. After the faculty interview, I went back to the main campus and had lunch and my interview with a student. This interview was really laidback, she didn't even really ask me any questions, we just kind of talked about the school and what it's like to live in Philadelphia. Finally, we had an information session to tell us a little bit more about the PIL program." Report Response
