What are your general comments?

"The day was very laid back and comfortable. Everyone seemed very happy and enthusiastic about the school. The first interview is one-on-one with someone associated with the medical school and very conversational. The second interview is really just hanging out with two current medical students and three other interviewees. The students pretty much just talked about their lives for the entire 30 minutes and really made you feel at home. Enjoy your time at the school. Best of luck!" Report Response
