What are your general comments?

"The interview is very quick and relatively painless. Parking can be a pain, so get there early. I have lunch first with another interview student and two med students. Everything is really laid back and they were trying to be very honest--not trying to sell the school bur rather give you a good idea of what one can expect. My advice is to interview the school as much as the school in interviewing you. Ask questions. The two interviews were really great. We found ideals and attributes that we shared and really just conversed about them. I didn't want to leave because I was having such a good time." Report Response
