What impressed you negatively?

"The Yr-2 students who toured us around the basic science campus seemed a little disinterested, but the Yr-4 students who toured us around the hospital were great. Also, my second interviewer was changed at the last minute due to an emergency and so I felt like the replacement didn't really have a chance to read through my file. Also, she had a meeting to go to twenty minutes after I arrived for the interview so it was very rushed." Report Response

"It is really just a fun day, so I wish I would have known their was no need to be nervous." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You arrive and meet with the Dean of Admissions and the Head of Financial Aid for about one hour. The you recieve a brief tour of the basic science campus before attending your first interview. Some people had back to back interviews at 10 and 11, but others did not. At noon you go to the hospital and eat lunch with fourth year students and get the chance to ask them questions (they are also evaluating you, but they are so friendly that you don't even notice).
