"The same interviewers were interviewing several of the applicants so each faculty interview was only about 25-30 minutes and seemed a little rushed. Also, financial aid wasn't discussed, which is important to know for such an expensive school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That Deming Pavilion (the housing "dorm") was so hot!! I may have opted out of that part of the tour since I will keep my city apartment I'm in now." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day went very well. The morning starts off with a welcome/ Q&A session with 2 second year students and the Assoc. Dean of Admissions. We then had some time to wander before our 2 faculty interviews. We checked out the amazing Embryo collection and if you're interested in surgery check out the "laproscopic lab" on the 8th floor! Then we had lunch with a student (which counts as equal weight for the interview) for an hour. The day ended with a tour of the facility. All of the students were "laid-back", but they seemed to be learning as well. It doesn't seem competitive either, more of a family atmosphere." Report Response
