What are your general comments?

"I was pleasantly surprised by my visit to Rosalind Franklin. The school seems like a nice place, and students appear happy and do very well with their boards and residency matches. I felt that my interviewers both read my file over very carefully - they knew a LOT about me right off the bat. The interviews both seemed conversational, but at the same time, I felt they got to know more about me than any of my other interviewers at other schools. There wasn't much in terms of an information session about the school (I'm still in the dark about how the curriculum is set up) and there was a lot of downtime. However, I feel like I learned enough about the school to know that it's a place I'd be happy to attend. One thing about admissions - they really do make use of the third interview (in the case that the first two interviewers' scores are dissimilar). I think 3 people on my day actually were called for a 3rd interview. All in all, CMS seems like a great place to go to medical school." Report Response
