What are your general comments?

"All and all I was so relaxed during the interview day that I when it was over I couldn't believe that I had worried about it so much before. It started with an introduction to Jefferson and then a meeting with a financial representative. I then had a student interview, which was very relaxed and conversational. Lunch with a few students and admissions faculty followed and then we had a quick tour. My faculty interview was after that and I had to find where it was. (It helps to get a map of Jefferson before your interview day in case you realize that you don't known where your interview is.) The faculty interview was also conversational and other than a few obvious questions (e.g. Why Jeff? Why be a doctor?), my interviewer just asked questions relating to whatever we were talking about." Report Response
