What are your general comments?

"My experience during this school visit was one of the best in comparison to my other interviews. The staff, students, and interviewers made the whole day very tolerable and the panel interview was actually fun!! The interview panel does not have you academic numbers, so they read your applications and resume carefully and ask appropriate questions. There was breakfast in the morning followed by a financial aid presentation. Then we were broken into two groups. One group took an extensive tour of the campus and saw the teaching facilities and on campus housing. In the meantime the other group interviewed. After the tour, we had lunch. The day concluded with a talk from a clinical director who informed us about the strengths of AZCOMs program. Throughout the day, students came up and socialized with us and gave honest answers to our questions. At the end of the day, I was very happy with the program at AZCOM... I hope I get in!!"
