What are your general comments?

"Interview was short. I couldn't finish my answers. The school has a very small hospital and facilites compared to other medical schools. Their gym facilites are way too small, basically they don't have a gym or swimming pool, or anywhere to exercise. I know that student life and living conditions will be big detractions. I did not like the services offered to the students (such as a nice big gym) and the hospitals were small, and I just did not like the environment of the school." Report Response
