What are your general comments?

"I believe we arrived at 11:15-11:30 AM outside the admissions office, receive a folder, go to a presentation on the school, financial aid, and then lunch with med students. After lunch, the students led a brief tour of the school, then we headed back to the admissions office at 1PM to be called for the interviews. Most got two interviews, but I had just one. Then we were free to go. The day was well structured overall. " Report Response
