What are your general comments?

"I arrived at 8:30 for my interview at 8:45, but they had changed the time on the interview without telling me, so I had to sit outside her office for another 45 minutes. That was the only bad part of the day however. I interviewed with Dr. McLoon, she teaches anatomy to the 1st years. It took a minute to connect with her, because she likes to talk alot, but she was very nice. The questions she asked were pretty standard though. After the interview there is a short presentation about the school (short but impressive) and then there is a tour that is given by students. Make sure that you wear comfortable shoes, because the med school campus is large and spread out. I didn't have problem but some of the girls in high heels did. After the tour they take you to the cafeteria and you can eat whatever you want. There was quite a bit to choose from so that was good. Overall the experience was good, and I hope I can go to school there. " Report Response
