What are your general comments?

"We had two info sessions in the morning, one about the school itself and one about the importance of doing research and being custodians of the greatest single achievement of mankind (doctors). At ten was either an interview or a tour. I had the tour. The guide was good, though a little hard to hear. She took us to the various ERs and the trauma center. At 11, some of us interviewed and some of us had a weird hour of nothingness. 12 was lunch with med students. This was fun and informative. 1 was either a wrap up session or an interview if you had yet to do one. Those interviewing at 1 wrapped up at 2. At the wrap up, we learned when we would find out about our applications and scholarships, etc. We were also told to go post on SDN! Interviews were SO relaxed. Really nothing to worry about. It was just a "conversation." No questions about health care policy or anything like that." Report Response
