What are your general comments?

"The staff is not that enthusiastic. The admissions lady told us that not many people apply and some of the people that apply have really bad mcat scores and some did not even take it yet. Also when I finally found my first interview I had to wait in the psychiatric ward. That was an experience. The patients took an interest in me and talked to me, when we started a sing a long- the receptionist called me to the back, and told me to that I may feel more comfortable sitting with them. I told her that I didn't mind, but she instructed me to sit with them. (I didn't mean to make them rowdy- I'll talk to anyone) But if you are more timid it might be hard to sit in the psychiatric ward." Report Response
