What are your general comments?

"We arrived at 10am and were done by 2. Had a tour of the hospital, brief talk about curriculum and lunch. I had two interviews, one with a second year med student and one with a professor. The professor was very...pompous and asked a lot of healthcare questions and then spent 20 minutes lecturing me on how medicine is a business and I shouldn't think of doctors as bad people if they don't take medicare. The student interview was really relaxed though, almost too relaxed." Report Response
