What are your general comments?

"I showed up right on time and had to take a shuttle to my interview, then got lost in the hospital once I got there, since the door to the interview site had an access code. Be sure you get there on time: shuttles to the sites only leave every half hour or so. The interviewer was very friendly - usually interviews are closed-file, but he orders his ahead of time so he has time to read them. He didn't know much about the school, so couldn't answer my questions. Afterwards, the tour was thorough and organized, including a student room and school facilities. Only downside: nobody from the staff/faculty available to answer questions about curriculum, etc." Report Response
