What are your general comments?

"The "speed dating" aspect goes smoothly. After lunch... 15 min. in interview one, 5 min. off while they take notes (a kitchen timer goes off and a lady knocks on the door), then repeat for interviews 2 & 3. The interviewers only had my amcas personal statement and the add'l comments I added to my secondary. The day starts with a meet & greet with a physician's wife (liaison). Ours is a drug rep married to an anesthesiologist (imagine that). She was great. Then we heard talks on the school, its curriculum/technology and finaid. Lunch was in the anything but diminutive cafeteria (w/ 2 first years). After the interviews we had a tour given by another 1st year (the only downside to the whole thing. all 1st year contact). No closing meeting. " Report Response
