"First we had a short talk about general things about the school and then we were left alone to do whatever we wanted. We could sit in on classes, visit the anatomy lab, or explore the surrounding area, just so long as we went to our interviews when they were scheduled and came back at 11:30 for lunch. During lunch, Jennifer Welch gave us another talk and then three students took us on a tour. We were then free to leave unless we had another interview." Report Response
