What are your general comments?

"The interviews were very laid back. I had a great conversation with an admissions faculty member who was very interested in getting to know me, and she explained how their admissions process works. The next was with a retired MD who was somewhat opinionated, but he assured me I was a strong candidate. Finally I had an interview with an M2, which was very conversational and I asked him plenty of questions. The presentation and tour were pretty standard- the M4 who gave the tour was really cool and laid back. The lunch was nice, and then the morning ppl were free to go." Report Response
