What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview, so I was very stressed out about it, but calmed down from my very first interaction with a person at NJ Med. They were all such nice people!While I was waiting for my tour with another applicant, several students came into the room just to say hi and chat with us. They weren't associate with the interview in anyway; they were just making sure that we recieved a warm welcome. It was great. The tour guides were excellent. I didn't feel that my interviewer and I truly clicked, but I still left with an overall positive impression of the school. " Report Response
