What are your general comments?

"we started off teh day with a talk on standardized patients and how clinical experience is the strength of the school; saw a standardized patient; had a tour. Clinical experience, community service, and a very copperative class seem to be the main strengths of the school. The interviiew itself was a mixed bag. There were the run of the mill questions, but then there were also some pretty tough ones. Another guy who interviewed seemed to have it tougher - how do you pay for socialized medicine? research on people by the Nazi's, although unethical by today's standards still yielded valuable info.; would you accept their research knowing how it was obtained?
