What are your general comments?

"I had both interviews in the am before the rest of the day got started. Both of mu interviewers were pretty laid back. The first one pretty much asked me about most of the things on my AMCAS and gave me a chance to elaborate. The second intterviewer was very interested in my non-traditional background. She was easily the most enthusiastic person I have ever met. This was followed by an informational session, lunch and tour. The facilities and programs are awesome but the location, for me, would be a too much of an adjustment." Report Response
