"Overall, it was a very laid-back interview. The day starts with an informal/small-talk meeting in library with med students, then you go to a quick meeting, followed by a tour. Next, you eat lunch with another group of med students and then its time for interviews. Everyone has 2 interviews, and then a meeting where you are told whether or not you have to be interviewed by a third person." Report Response
