What are your general comments?

"First, we had a presentation about the history of the school and an overview of the curriculum (both branches). The interviews themselves were standard. The day was very well-structured. Each interview was 30 minutes long and they stayed pretty much on schedule. The student interview was closed-file; the faculty interview was open-file. Finally, it was lunch and the tour. [The Saturday interview schedule is different from the weekday one.] The best part of the experience was after the interview day was over. I noticed a flyer for a Lunar New Year charity banquet hosted by the med students of 5 Philadelphia med schools. One of the tour guides saw me looking at it and asked if I wanted to go. She offered to drive me there and back and I got to hang out with her and her friends during the 200+ person dinner. I learned about Drexel's Chinatown clinic and their students' involvement in the Asian American Health Care Network in Philadelphia. I wasn't expecting such friendliness but I ended up meeting a lot of kind people (students and random Philadelphians) over the weekend." Report Response
