What are your general comments?

"Overall, I had a great experience. My interview was scheduled for 10:00 am, so I arrived around 9:30 am. The interviewers were running late, so I didn't actually interview until 10:30 am. The wait wasn't too bad though - they give you a folder with information about the school in it, so I read that over. The interview was very laid-back and conversational. It was one physician and one fourth year medical student. Both were very nice. They really only asked about myself and about my experience working in the ER. At noon, the six of us who had interviewed in the morning were taken on a tour of the school followed by lunch with our tour guides." Report Response
