What are your general comments?

"The day started at nearly 11a, so you get to sleep in most likely. No 6a wakeup call. Information, tour, then lunch all before 1p. The tour was with a 3rd yr who really seemed to enjoy the school but was very realistic about the medical profession. Interviews began at 1. The interview was very laid back. I interviewed with Dr. Ferrari, who was just amazing. He was more interested in getting to know me. He was raised in the town over from my parents, so we had some personal topics of conversation. Expect the usual, "Why medicine?", "Why WVU?", etc. " Report Response
