What are your general comments?

"Interview itself was such a short part of the day. Many people say interviews are discussions, I felt interrogated though. It was probably just my perception, being my first interview. Or maybe not. I was strict on the ratings above; the school wasn't bad, depends on what suits you and where it falls on your priority list, admittedly low on mine but I'd probably go. Epitome of huge public school and med center. Interviewees seemed down to Earth, perhaps a little too down to Earth. Mostly locals or from nearby." Report Response
