What are your general comments?

"I was a bit disappointed that the orientation started 15 minutes late and they picked a tour guide last minute so I had to wait an extra 10 minutes to have the person come in... the tour guide was soooo talkative and we spent 15 minutes standing at one spot while he blabbed away...my interview was at 2 PM at New Brunswick and here I am at Piscataway campus medical school and the tour just ended at 1:10 PM.. I had to grab and eat my lunch super fast and left at 1:20 to go to New Brunswick for my interview... I was there at 1:40 and the parking deck was entirely full...i had to go around and look for other spots and eventually the deck opened..this was at 1:45... then I was circling around for 10 whole minutes without a single spot open and I was freaking out already so I resorted to valet parking and ran to the place where my interview was at made it at exactly 2 PM... regardless of that inconvenience, the interview went well. Dr. Tannenbaum was such a nice man and he liked me so I hope I get in!" Report Response
