"We went on a tour in the morning and there wasn't really much to see. Then the dean came in and we all introduced ourselves. We had a housing talk, financial aid wasn't there but it wasn't too bad. Then we had lunch and had the student interviews first. we sat outside under the trees, really laid back! Then I had my second interview with an MD at the UCI Med Center.
