What are your general comments?

"the day starts at 8:30 and my first interview was at 9 (other interviewees had them anywhere from 9-10:15). my first interview was more of a conversation about my academic life and experiences listed in AMCAS. the interview itself was so low stress, nothing to worry about. after the interview, i was free for 1 1/2 hours to wander around or sit in a class. then came lunch and an overview of how the adcom reviews each application. if you're looking for financial aid info or anything else, it won't come here, you'll have to go find it. after lunch was a BRIEF tour. the place is a maze, so touring yourself is somewhat difficult. granted, it was our tourguide's first tour, so i think she was a bit nervous. the view from the 9th floor cafeteria is amazing. after the 15 min tour i interviewd with a current med student. this interview was also non-stress. he offered his perspective on a number of things which was really helpful. overall, the whole thing is nothing to stress over, they really just want to know who you are."
