What are your general comments?

"Started in the admissions office at 8:00 with Nelson Strother, who gave an excellent overview of the school, the curriculum, memphis, and financial aid... basically everything you could ever want to know about the school and the area. We then went on a tour of the GEB and sat-in on a class (awesome!). Then we toured the library. We then met with medical students who gave us a tour of the facilities (including GEB, anatomy labs, study areas). Ate lunch with M2-M4s (who were a great resource) and then did a tour of several of the clinical sites (the med, le bonheur, etc). I was totally blown away by all the hospitals in the area (and beyond) that the school had to offer. The tour ended, and Nelson gave an overview of the admissions process. Then we had our interviews (one personal, one academic), which lasted about an hour each, and we were finished by 4:00pm. Overall, it was a great day; definitely more insight into than I would have imagined... Now, hopefully I'll get in! ;) " Report Response
