What are your general comments?

"I arrived early and sat in a waiting room with the other applicants. 10 minutes before my interview, I was given a paper with directions to my interviewer's office. This proved slightly stressful because I had to walk two blocks to a new building and then find my interviewer's office. The interview was very conversational and laid back. After the interview, all the applicants met with the dean, who explained what happens to our applications. We were then given lunch and a tour of the campus by two 2nd year med students.
