What are your general comments?

"I arrived at the library and was amazed to see 30 other students interviewing that day. The lunch was ok and we were given a brief talk on Jeff Pride. Students picked us up for interviews which were very relaxed. We returned for more discussion on the curriculum and living in the Philly area. We were led in small groups on tours (I hope other people have better tour guides than I did). Then I had a little time before my faculty interview. My interview was over in the hospital. The interviewer was very nice and was very honest about his experience in the school." Report Response
