What are your general comments?

"The day started at 9:30. As an URM, I first met with the HCOP office. At 10 am there was an orientation with the dean of admissions. A brief financial presentation. Then there were two 45 min interviews, one student, one faculty. My interviewers were very laid back, and it felt more like a conversation. After the interviews we had lunch. After lunch was the tour. I was impressed by the newly renovated library. The tour guides were fun to be around. They are first-year students, and they empasized that in med school you still have time for a social life. After the tour, we had a PBL session which was fun. Trying to figure the solution to the problem presented made me feel like I was an up and coming physician. The day ended with an exit briefing with the dean of admissions and a talk with the new dean of students." Report Response
