What are your general comments?

"The interviews were very conversational. The interviewers really aimed to know me as a person, and not simply as a collection of grades and numbers. I stayed at Rochester the night before. I was refreshed for the interview. After that, I spent the evening with current medical school students. The next day, I sat in on a few second-yr lectures, and I met more students. My host was awesome. I would love to attend Rochester." Report Response
