What are your general comments?

"There was an extensive tour of the facilities (which were impressive) and a lunch with some current med students who were all very friendly and informative. There was also an overview of the school's curriculum and theory on medical education given by one of the directors of medical education that was very informative. We all then split up and went with current 1st and 2nd year students you interviewed us one on one. My interviewer was very laid back and friendly. Definitely was more of a get to know you conversation than an "interview". I then went to the office of my faculty interviewer. Once again she was very friendly and laid back. We spent more time talking about the Steelers than anything. I then returned to the admissions office and had a short wrap-up interview with one of the Dean's of Admission. This last interview was very short and more to make sure all my questions were answered than anything. " Report Response
