What are your general comments?

"Interviews were very informal, and enjoyable. Have lots of questions ready for the meeting with the Dean. He is a kind individual and I do not understand why some say he is impolite or hard. Be aware that they although they say they want individuals who are research committed, they really want you to do any research before or after the program. But an amazing place to study medicine."
