What are your general comments?

"Very laid back and everyone was really friendly. There are two interviews, one with a faculty member that can be just about anyone, an MD, PhD, Master's, etc. Each interview is 45 min. each. The second interview is when about 4-5 applicants get into a room with 2 med students, an M2 and M4 most likely. The second interview felt more like a question answer format. There are lots of presentations talking about the school, financial aid, and tours, if you think you might get a little tired (the day is from 8am to 3pm with interviews around 11am and 12pm), you may want to bring a small snack to re-energize you."
