What are your general comments?

"Fantastic school! I like the area and the people. The facilities are nice, and the students seem quite content. You will have a brief admissions and financial aid presentation, then have lunch with some students. After that, you will either do interviews and then a tour, or the tour and then interviews, depending on how they schedule you. I interviewed with 6 other students. Everyone was very friendly and supportive. The interviews will last for 15-20 minutes each, and you will be interviewed by three faculty independently. They only have access to your AMCAS essay and any Wake secondary essays. All of the interviewers were very nice, supportive, and appeared interested in what I had to say. A lot of redundant questions, simply because none of the interviewers know what the others asked you. You go from one, to another, to another, with at most a 5 minute break in between (usually less)." Report Response
