"The day is about 8-3:30 depending on when your interviews end. The morning is an extensive tour of both the hospital (didn't see too much exciting stuff) and the school by an admissions staff member...the highlight is the WISER center, the largest non-military simulation lab in the country. Lunch is with med students in cafeteria, and then afternoon is personalized interview schedules: 1 dean (10 mins), 1 student (50 mins), 1 faculty member (50 mins)" Report Response
