What are your general comments?

"I stayed with a student host, and was immediately impressed with the housing facilities and the laid-back demeanor of the students. The interview events started at 8 the next morning, with presentations from students and a financial aid counselor. There were 12 interviewees. I interviewed with a pediatrician for ~40 min, and then joined the group on a campus tour (really, a tour of their medical sciences building). The anatomy lab was state-of-the-art, and did not smell like one at all. At the end, we were all treated to lunch." Report Response
