What are your general comments?

"My interview day started as I entered County Hospital to meet the faculty member in his office. That hospital is really something else! The most hands-on medical training could be received there among the most diverse patient population. My interviewer spoke about his experience at LAC-USC and also touched on what this medical program has to offer an applicant like. The tour and lunch with medical students was pretty good as well. The student interview was short and to the point; he knew exactly what he wanted to find out about me and did a great job at answering all my questions. I was surprisingly VERY impressed with this school!!!" Report Response
