What are your general comments?

"Excellent. Very relaxing and informative. Spent the first two hours with the other 16-20 applicants as we were given a tour of the school and hospital. The first interview was given by a 2nd year medial student - casual and very upfront about her reasons for picking GW. The second was given by a faculty member - which was also a very low stress environment. He did tend to read off more questions from a list and write down the answers." Report Response
