During the interview day as some of us walked around the campus other students came up to us and said good luck, etc. The students seemed upbeat and nice, which impressed me. I also visited the standardized patient center which I encourage others to do. I got to watch the first years do their first patient interviews from the control room, very interesting!! I was accepted about three weeks after my interview and I will probably attend!" Report Response
