What are your general comments?

"Signed in, had plenty of time to relax and talk to other students before my own interview (great cookies provided). The first interview was by a PhD instructor for 30 min, this one was open file. The second interview directly afterwards was with a 4th year med student and an MD and was closed file, also 30 mins long. I knew they were important interviews, but they seemed much more like conversations with new friends rather than stressful judgements. If you're interviewing here, just relax and be honest. I applied early decision, which meant no time for a tour, but they can arrange a tour for you beforehand if you ask. I think regular decision applicants get a tour. A tour after the interview is pointless for ED applicants because admission decisions are made the next day. " Report Response
