What are your general comments?

"Arrived the night before. Got to the school around 7:45am. Was greeted by Nelson Strother in admissions. There were around nine candidates. Mr. Strother did an overview of the school, curriculum, and what to expect for that day. Someone from financial aid came in and did a brief presentation. Diane Harris walked everyone to where their interviews were going to be. Toured the General Education Building, Library, and Anatomy Lab. Did not get a chance to sit in on a class (studnets on Spring Break). Had lunch, toured some of the hospitals, and had my interviews in the afternoon. One was with a third year student and the other with an MD. Both interviewers were good. Overall a very good day. Stress level was low. Was late for my second interview, because the first one went over and I had to walk a few blocks to get to the second one. It was not a problem at all." Report Response
