What are your general comments?

"The day could probably have been cut in half with all of the same content. Tours and virtually every talk could have been shorter, though all were helpful. Everyone was very nice all day and enthusiastic about the school. I was very impressed by the wide variety of opportunities that are available while in the program and that the schools seems as though it will support you no matter what your interests are. I interviewed with a PhD researcher who was very nice. I had some experience in the specific types of research that he conducts and he was interested in my background in that especially. My other interviewer was a 4th year medical student. She was nice, but I didn't feel like I could get a good "read" on her - very stoic. Nothing negative from either interview regardless though. Very laidback and comfortable." Report Response
