What are your general comments?

"Dr. Mueller, assoc. Dean of admission, is awesome. He stayed involved the whole day, and went out of his way to get to know the students. Although the morning before the interview was long, it was very informative. I thought coming to a smaller city would be difficult to adjust to, but life in Des Moines seems just fine. The students seem to really enjoy med school and the curriculum DMU offers. The interview was very relaxed like everyone says. The interviewers just want to get to know who you are personally.
