What are your general comments?

"The day starts out with presentations, so pound coffee early on. Then two interviews and a tour. If Dr. Sarno interviews you, try not to worry about the length of the interaction... most people were in with him 5min or less. There was a short tour and then you're done. I was out by around 2:30, but I know some people stayed much later; just the luck of the draw." Report Response
