What are your general comments?

"i had a difficult time scheduling interviews with my three separate interviewers. since the biomed building was closed due to the october floods, i had to meet with my interviers at various hospitals. luckily, i rented a car! i also was given an opportunity to meet with an ms-2 and she answered many questions that i had about the class size, pbl, etc. the selection process for out-of-staters(OOS) is very discouraging (1. adcoms ranks all applicants; 2. OOS are pulled from top 52; 3. only top 6 OOS are selected, rest of class is filled with in-state applicants.)" Report Response
