What are your general comments?

"Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the school. They spent a lot of time telling us about the curriculum and the school. One of the Deans spoke us, followed by a financial aid person, a "guest speaker" (ours was an MD on the faculty), and a 4th year med student. From what everyone said, it sounds like a very good program. We next had lunch with a bunch of 1st and 2nd years, and then a tour. Then we watched a brief movie about the school which showed some of the things we didn't see on the tour. And then we had interviws. It was initially hard to tell how I was doing in my interview--the doctor seemed to like certain things about me and then he asked a bunch of hard ethical questions and scenarios that I wasn't sure how I did on. But in the end, he did say that he hoped he'd see me there the next year, so that seemed positive." Report Response
