What are your general comments?

"Like all the other summaries the day proceeds like so: 8:00am, the dean of admissions gives an hour long lecture on the history of the medical school and tells you about the day. 9:00 everyone goes into a small conference room and sits and listens to various people come in and chat about the school. People interview at 9:15, 10:15 and 11:15. Basically lots of waiting until your interview and after until everyone is done. At 12:00 lunch is served and you get to talk with students followed by a tour. 2:00 return to small converence room and listen to the dean speak again about what goes on in the process from now on. 3:00 day ends" Report Response
