What are your general comments?

"*I stayed with a great student host who gave me a great tour of the brand spanking new student housing units. The rent was a bit high, but the places were spacious and they were right across the parking lot from the school. *I didn't feel very positive about the interviews, but the day itself went well. *About the interviews: Two were conducted in a manner that made me feel quite comfortable. The 3rd interviewer basically spent the whole time critiquing my academic record in a way that made me feel defensive and made me wonder why they even invited me for an interview. I expect to be asked about my grades and MCAT, but not in a such a harsh manner... *I got the impression that most students attend the school b/c it's the only choice that they have. *Finch has great opportunities to volunteer, job shadow, and do clinicals in diverse environments."
