What are your general comments?

"Get there early. Started with orientation that had the facts like applicants, secondaries, interviews, acceptances. Also on the cirriculum. Afterwards, we had 3 hr time for 2 individual 1hr interviews. So basically you get 1 hr of break(could be before, during, or after the two interviews). Then free box lunch with med students. A short tour of SOM. then a talk with the student life director, then a wrap up with Dr Kelly and a free clinic video. " Report Response
