What are your general comments?

"I had an interview in the morning so first I came in and got it out of hte way. Dr. Dubin was really sweet and although he asked a lot of questions he didn't make me feel like I was under a lot of pressure. Next came an information session which was pretty boring--I wish they hadn't used powerpoint and instead had actually shown us the hospital (although this would have been difficult considering it's not next to the school). Next was a financial aid information session which was pretty dull. The tour was the only worthwhile part of the post-interview part of the day. Seeing the faciltiies gave me a better feel for the place." Report Response
