What are your general comments?

"I arrived an hour earlier than scheduled so the admssions people were kind enough to give me a lunch ticket to grab some chow before the tour. The waiting room in the admissions office is pretty chilly and the other person I was interviewing with kept to herself so the waiting was pretty boring. As for the interview, I dont know if they make an effort to match people according to their applications but I had a scary amount of rapport and common interests with the person I interviewed with. The admissions people at NJMS did a fabulous job or I just lucked out completely. " Report Response
