What are your general comments?

"This is a very laid back interview. I was scheduled for the morning interview. After checking in there is a short grace period before the orientation presentation to allow anyone running late to get there. The Orientation is about an hour long. You are presented with pertinent information about the admissions process, specifics about the adcom, information as to when we can expect notifications, data for last year's applicant pool, Information about specialty programs for student involvement, financial aid info, name and location of today's interviewer and notification about how to set up the interview with the community physician you are asigned to meet with in the coming weeks. Then you are directed or escorted to your interviewer. The individual interview can take between 30-50 minutes. Then you return for a light lunch with a M1 and a M2, followed by a tour of the facilities. Those in scheduled for the afternoon session initially have lunch, followed by the tour, followed by orientation presentation, concluded with the individual interview. All in all the day is about 3 hours long. " Report Response
