What are your general comments?

"Interview was uncomfortable and stressful. Every other interview I have been on we were not required to interview with and in front of other students. I don't understand the reasoning behind this. Campus appears to be poor and students were not enthusiastic...Gym and weight room were in poor shape...We were not allowed to see certain buildings...There is no on campus housing. Not my first choice for a medical education. " Report Response
