What are your general comments?

"I arrived at the admissions office and was given a sealed envelope with my application to bring to the interviewer. I was sent next door to the hosptial where I was interviewed by a doctor who was an Einstein graudate herself. She took about 5 minutes to read through my application before the interview. The interview itself was a pleasant experience - she basically asked me to talk about my experiences listed on my application (volunteer work, research, hobbies etc.). The interview lasted 25-30 minutes. Afterward I was going to go to a second-year lecture, but it was nearly over, so I didn't end up going. Later in the day, there was a lunch meeting with first and second year students, followed by a tour of the campus. Everyone seemed very enthusiastic, and no one had anything bad to say. Overall, it was a very positive experience." Report Response
