What are your general comments?

"First they had me sit in the admissions office by myself for an hour and I watched a video about NJMS about five or six times. Then my interview lasted about an hour. She asked all the standard questions about healthcare in the US and was very nice. Then I had lunch by myself--they don't guide you or anything--you just have to roam around the buidling until you find the cafeteria. Then the tour was pretty good. I wish there had been more structure in the day." Report Response
