What are your general comments?

"I got there 45 minutes late. There were 4 speakers and I got there while the first was still talking (which means I didn't miss much). The first speaker talked about curriculum, the second about financial aid, and the third about family medicine (I don't know why this topic was chosen), and the fourth asked the group to suggest topics and then talked about those. Then we went to a conference room and lunch was just a few subs, some pretzels, some fruit, and coke. Eventually we broke into two groups and went on tours. The highlight of the tour was the clinical skills lab. Someone who works there gave our group a tour of the place. The other facilities were pretty ordinary. Then we went back to the conference room and half of the students had to sit around and wait for 2 hours while the other half interviewed 20 minutes later. " Report Response
