What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you are driving (I had a rental car) you need to get a parking permit from the transportation/parking office near the medical school and then park in a designated visitor spot. This whole production takes about 20-25 minutes, so leave early. I paid $6 for the day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was interviewed by a clinician in an actual exam room (with an exam table, paper cover, everything) used for teaching.
