What are your general comments?

"A wonderful school. I liked the atmosphere, the UPMC hospitals, and the interviews were so low-key and not stressful. The student interviewer has no information about you and they have a checklist of questions they have to ask you. The faculty interviewer only has your personal statement (which they don't really read too much of), so basically we talked about very relaxed topics such as hobbies, life, Pittsburgh, etc" Report Response
