What are your general comments?

"NJMS is a great school. I was really impressed with the quality of their clinical education, and the outreach to the community. The amount of clinical exposure is definitely unique among med schools. The actual day wasn't that great. My interview was at 9 and my interviewer was awesome. I felt really relaxed and like he really wanted to get to know me. But when I came back I watched the same video 12 times, then had lunch with the other interviewees (no dean or students), and had a short tour." Report Response
