What are your general comments?

"Easy, it went like this (for early assurance): you go in with 20 or so other applicants being interviewed. A dean briefs you for a little bit, then you wait for your interviewer to come get you. Mine asked me easy questions like "describe yourself, why do you want to be a doctor, what about upstate, do you like your college, why would you be a good doctor, what experiences make you sure you want to be a doctor" then you have an hour or so of free time, then they feed you and talk to you about their school, then you have another interview. The latter was a student who also did early assurance. Very nice and friendly. I left very positive." Report Response
