What are your general comments?

"It was a great day. I finished my interviews in the morning, so then I went on my tour, had a delicious lunch and was done by 1:00pm. My faculty interview lasted for almost 90 minutes and was very conversational. He asked me to describe my experience in college and asked follow up questions from there. He was very friendly and welcoming. My student interview was very casual (we sat outside on a bench) and lasted for about an hour. Neither of my interviewers had anything in front of them while we talked, so it felt much more relaxed. Two very friendly students took us on a tour of the campus and LA County Hospital and then to lunch. They were helpful and answered our questions honestly. Overall, I was very impressed with the program and the school, but I'm still hesitant to move to LA..." Report Response
