What are your general comments?

"Interviewing and SUNY Upstate is a pretty nice experience. The school in general is very welcoming and friendly. Your day is pretty laid back, your left on you own for an hour or so to explore which is nice. Some of the other interviewees and I actually explored together and we were able to sit in on a class and see a cadaver on our tour of the gross anatomy lab. Also while we were up in the library one of the librarians came out and was nice enough to tell us more about the facilities there, just another example of how friendly everyone at SUNY Upstate is.
