What are your general comments?

"When I first arrived, it was a rainy and dreary day-but the secretarial staff was extremely accomodating, took everyone's coats and jackets, and gave out OSU messenger bags! The day consisted of a presentation by the Dean of Admissions, Director of Education, and a 4th year med school student. Lunch was served followed by a tour of the facilities. Most notable was the student skills center, with state of the art technology, including a completely responsive "dummy" patient, plasma screen T.V's, simulated patient rooms equipped with cameras that video exchanges between students and the patient that are posted online for review, and more. The interview was held after the tour. My interviewer was extremely laid back-she made me feel at ease from the beginning of the interview. She was really interested in getting to know about me more personally, and not so much on my accomplishments/ activities during undergrad. I felt confident that the interview went well after it was over!" Report Response
