What are your general comments?

"much more of a rapid fire questioning experience than the more conversational interviews ive had previously, as has been described on this site. clinician that acted rude, , disinterested, student who acted neutral, admissions committee guy who acted friendly and accepting. seems to be the three roles they have there to try to make you nervous. if youre ready for it though, no problem. most nervewracking thing was waiting the hour and a half between tours ending and my interview. the day was full with a presentation in the beginning and then demonstration of their standardized patient run throughs, with us interviewees involved, which was very amusing. tour by administrator of childrens hospital which was extraordinary. tour of academic building by student. disappointed that we couldnt see a classroom or the anatomy lab. then to lunch with more administrators talking about fin aid, and a student presented slideshow. seems like a tight knit community, with fairly relaxed, cooperative, interactive students. loved it."
