What are your general comments?

"I arrived a little later than I should have, so I missed eating lunch. (I wouldn't reccommend that.) The first thing is a small prestation about the school and the curriculum. Then there is a small financial aid presentation. After that you go on a tour of the complex. (Excellent facilities by the way, everything seems pretty new.) After that you have two interviews. I interviewed with an MD from the hospital nearby, and a 4th year. The MD was very laid back and I think we connected well. The interview was very conversational, and we talked a lot about our common interests. (hockey and music)Talking with the 4th year was a little weird, because it seemed like he was more nervous than I was to be there. Nothing to surprising came out during the interviews though. After the interviews the day is done. (about 4:30)" Report Response
