What are your general comments?

"Dr. Hinkley opens with a presentation at 9 AM introducing you to the facilities on campus and going over some admissions statistics. He is friendly and inviting, and you can feel free to ask him just about anything. After his presentation, Dr. Bookman, who heads up the MD/PhD program, presents for 30 minutes on his interpretation of medicine as humanity's single biggest accomplishment. Afterwords, students either have an interview or go on a tour of the facilities. At noon, a very nice buffet lunch is served and six or eight med students join you to answer any off the record questions you may have. Then, afternoon interviews are up and those who did not tour earlier do so at this point. After all is said and done, Dr. Hinkley closes with some remarks about when to expect the decision regarding your application and he would like to know your impressions of the day." Report Response
