What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was the grandfather I never knew. From the very beginning when he shook my hand, he greeted me incredibly warmly. He liked the fact that I graduated from the undergraduate school and that I got involved in a lot of activities. He pretty much went through my AMCAS and asked me questions about my experiences. He was a great guy to talk to, and I think he appreciated the fact that I wasn't just focused only on science. Because I had many other interests, we had a good talk flowing. The students are really really (really) happy to be there. The facilities are ehhh - I saw better ones at supposedly lesser schools, but I think that everything else (student life, teaching) is great. " Report Response
