What are your general comments?

"I was really nervous because this was my first one but everyone tried to make us as comfortable as possible. Dr. Haight was GREAT! if you've had any doubts about being a doctor- he'll erase them for you with his talks! I stayed at the best western, so I got to know everyone before the group interview. The tour of campus was nice. During the interview I was the only student who didn't get asked personal questions about research, or my file. Most of my questions were theoretical. But I still got in- yay! Like Dr. Haight said- the interviewers already know your answer, they just want to know how you react and explain. Great day overall- my impression of the school improved."
