What are your general comments?

"They are very nice people in the admin, started on time, show you where to go for your interviews, the students pick you up from them waiting area. My first interviewer was a very cool Ph.D. and the student was very relaxed and we had a conversation about her personal life instead of asking me the dry boring why medicine questions. The professor was also very conversational and was more interested in my views than my credentials. They tell you right away that the interviwers observe you psychologically so be prepared."
