"Great experience. Interview was very laid back and not at all stressful. The tour was informative and the dean finished up with a great discussion. He proved to me that he got into medicine for the right reasons and I would be honored to attend a school headed by such an outstanding, compassionate and charasmatic individual. I am proud to mention that today I got a phone call from the school saying I was accepted. I really liked the timeliness of their decision and it shows class that they take the time to individually call each person interviewed. For those also accepted, I cannot wait to see you in August!"
