What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview, so understandably, I was a bit nervous. The drive from Western NY where I'm from was a little crazy, especially in the dark and fog. I was really impressed by how nice all the students, staff, and faculty were - very chill ppl. Interview was very conversational, very fluid, and will probably be my easiest (have interviews coming up at KCOM, NYCOM, and NSUCOM). Be prepared to explain in detail about your motivations and background (goes without saying). Went to lunch with some MS1s, MS2s; really interesting discussion about SBL/PBL tracks. Not too sure about PBL since it seems a bit unorganized, but lunch at the General Lewis was excellent. Finished with a tour of campus; saw Otto the human patient simulator, 24-hr study areas, library, bookstore, and g. anatomy labs. Anatomy labs were pretty impressive; apparently they were faculty-designed and have a unique ventilation system that works well. " Report Response
