What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"Most of the day took place in a large conference room. One of the deans came in to talk with us, and she seemed really friendly and excited about the school. The whole day was guided by the interview coordinator, who was very informative and professional. He took us on a tour of the hospital, which really impressed me. Afterwards we eat lunch and about 10 med students, mostly first years, came in to talk with us about the school. However, the interview coordinator stayed in the room the whole time so I'm not sure if he was there to make sure the students didn't say anything negative about the school or what. Afterwards, we were called out one by one to interview with a students and then a faculty member. The interviews were very relaxed and conversational. Then we had a presentation from a member of the office for student opportunities, and that was it. " Report Response
