What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview so of course I was nervous and on very little sleep but when I arrived the welcome by the Dean helped me to relax. My interviewer was really nice and it was more like we were having a conversation. It didn't really feel like an interview at all. I had my interview at 9:15 so I really got to enjoy the rest of the day. We had a chance to sit in on an anatomy lecture and then during our tour we saw the anatomy labs. Over all it was a great experience." Report Response
