What are your general comments?

"Just like a lot of people have mentioned, it was a very relaxed day. The students who ran the whole day were 1st year volunteers. Just goes to show their dedication to the school. They don't play a role or have any influence on the admission committee and so they were free to express their honest opinions. This was very comforting and the fact that they all had a sense of humor was a big plus. As for the interviews, they were really more like conversations. Jefferson takes pride in how their students get along with each other and that's what they look for - students who feel that jefferson can be their home for at least 4 years of medical school.
