What are your general comments?

"The interview day was not very well-organized. The students took us on a brief tour that didn't show much, and it doesn't seem like there's a distinct space for the medical school at UCLA. The students I met were definitely a little too laid back and uninteresting compared to the students at other schools. The facilities were old and run-down, and my interviewer definitely lacked social and communication skills. " Report Response
