"The night before there was a pizza party in Olin Hall and some of the first-year students took us on an impromptu tour of the med school and the hospital. It was a really fun night and I really enjoyed meeting all of the students and other interviewees in a relaxed environment. The next morning I had breakfast with an AMWA member, went on a tour with a 4th year student, had a 2-hour interview (I think that was a good thing) and had a fabulous lunch in Queeny Tower."
