What are your general comments?

"It was overall a fun day. The students were enthusiastic and very eager to share honest opinions about the school. My host was very generous in letting me stay with her and another medical student drove me and a couple of other interviewees to the airport. The introductory talk by admissions lasted pretty long and towards the end I had a hard time keeping up my interest. The faculty speaker and admissions director/dean made up for the long talk with their welcoming presence. Some people complained about the weather. I thought it was nice, 70 degrees, just a little bit cloudy. Ohio State's med school facilities impressed me." Report Response
