What are your general comments?

"A great facility with really friendly students. During the day we were routinely offered encouragement by many of the students at the school. There didn't seem to be the sort of cutthroat competitiveness that plague other schools. Even the fellow interviewers seemed cool; we chatted openly and joked about the application process. The whole day was really relaxing it itself, so don't stress over it at all. Technology is top notch, and their hospital is currently being renovated. All in all, a really great school.
