What are your general comments?

"it was overall a postiive experience. the students were happy and the people i met were really nice. my student host was incredibly sweet, though we didn't hit it off as well as i'd liked bc of the age difference (she's much older). My interview was the toughest out of the 6 i've had so far. My interviewers were 2 female faculty and a male medical student. They weren't scary though, they tried to make me feel very comfortable while at the same time asking tough questions. In the end, there was some laughing and some joking. My interview went over by 30 minutes, so even though it was a bit rough, they were probably pretty interested in what i had to say..." Report Response
