What are your general comments?

"The overall interview was very relaxed. I walked in and my interviewer told me that I could take off my coat and take off my tie if i wanted because he wanted me to be relaxed. From the start, I knew the interview was not going to be very tense as I had previously assumed. My interveiwer was very nice and was willing to answer any questions that I had. I have been at UMDNJ-NJMS many times because I do research there. It is an old school. You can tell the building is old. From what I've seen though, the students are very supportive of each other and seem to really like going to that school. I've volunteered in their hospital as well and I know that medical students get a very good hand-on experience in their first 2 yrs of medical school. Overall, I was very impressed with the school and could see myself going there. " Report Response
