What are your general comments?

"interview was real laid back and my interviewers were generally very interested in knowing a lot about my experience and my research. i was asked very appropriate questions about myself and my knowledge, and was given some tough questions that were workable. i was very impressed with this school and i think that it compares with other top tier schools very favorably. its just the high tuition that dissuades a lot of competitive students. i walked away feeling like i would get an excellent education. the layout of the school being adjacent to the hospital affords a lot of flexibility in how you want to spend your time shadowing, doing research, etc. its got it all and more.
