What are your general comments?

"You start the day at 9:00 am with a meeting and introduction. The dean speaks for about 30 minutes and try to stay awake but I assure you that it will probably be hard because of his tone of voice. Then, you basically have 1 or 2 hrs to do what you want or go to an interview and then meet back at the same room for lunch and tour. Then go to your next interview and then go home. If you can, stay with student host! I went out with 20 medical students the nigth before my interview and we drank, watched a movie and went out to dinner... cool experience and they really love it there. " Report Response
