What are your general comments?

"It is a very laid back and unstressful day. My interview was in the afternoon, so my first event was the tour. The facilities are okay to other schools I've seen, but the Eddie simulator was cool. (you'll see it on the tour for sure.) Then there was a luncheon with some students and faculty. They give short presentations about the school while you eat. Beware that some of the students there are actually on the admissions committee. After that those who already interview leave, and then those who have afternoon interviews wait together. (there were about 10 of us.) I interviewed with Dr. Swierkosz (or something like that) He is the dean of students at the med school. He is very nice and conversational during the interview. He really seemed to want to get to know me as a person. Overall it was a good experience." Report Response
