What are your general comments?

"I arrived the night before my interview and spent the night with a student host. It's really easy to hop on the Metrolink outside of the airport and I met him at the stop near the med school. The host lived about 1/2 hour away from the school, but he was very nice and made me feel right at home as he answered all my questions about the school. My interview was at 9:00 or so the next day. All the applicants just sort of hang around in a room with some snacks and wait for their interviews. It was sort of a fun time to get to know the other applicants. People were there from all over the country. The interview was pretty good. My interviewer was switched at the last minute, and I was warned that my new interviewer could sometimes seem a little harsh. I didn't find her to be that way at all. She was very nice and I could tell that she just wanted to get to know me. It looked like all of her questions came from a sheet, and she sort of filled in the blanks as the interview went along. Some of my answers were pretty lame, but she never made me feel bad about any of them. After the interview we were split into groups and had a tour through the medical school. The tour was pretty thorough, and when we ran into doctor's they all answered our questions and chatted with us for a few minutes. After that there was a lunch and the day was over. I walked back to the metrolink and rode it to the airport. We missed out on the finance talk because the presenter wasn't there on the day of my interview. It would have been interesting to see it, though, because the tuition there is so much. For me, that's the only negative of this school. They sent me a letter 3 weeks after the interview informing me that I got accepted. It's nice that they respond so fast - they were the first school I got an interview invitation from and the first school to get back to me. Awesome service when it seems like there are so many other schools that don't make it easy for their applicants." Report Response
