What are your general comments?

"Dr. Haight is a great admissions director. I liked how he took the time to personally meet us at the hotel before we went to the campus. He was very informative and was very encouraging. He made us feel proud that we were there for an interview. All they needed to know now was how we were like in person. I liked the panel format. We had 3 doctors and a student to 3 interviewees. I felt that the easiest questions came from the student. Overall, it was a good interview day. " Report Response
