What are your general comments?

"The day was well-planned, and everyone I met who was affiliated with the school could not have been more encouraging and and kind. The tour is a too long; after the WISER simulation center (seems like a VERY good tool to have) you spend most of it walking through connecting bridges between hospitals. The interviews were really relaxed and Dean Curtiss was very plesant in our meeting/interview. (When you meet with the Dean, make sure you can concisely describe WHY PITT!)" Report Response
