What are your general comments?

"It was an excellent day. After an introduction to the school, the interviews are next. It is nice to get them over with early so you can enjoy the rest of the day. The interviews are extremely low stress. They really are just like conversations. The first doctor I spoke with was still wearing his scrubs. That is just how laid back this place is! After the interviews we got a really comprehensive tour of all the school's facilities. We even got to go into the Gross Anatomy Lab while the students were dissecting. That was really fun to actually see students in class, something other medical schools have not done. Overall, it was a nice, easy-going day." Report Response
