What are your general comments?

"I had a great day at Case. I had never been to Cleveland, so everything I was seeing was brand new to me. Absolutely everyone I met there was so eager to talk to us and share their experiences. Even though Case prepares students to be top notch physicians, they told us that they STILL had time to be normal!! The interviews were very low-stress. The faculty interview was open file and very conversational. Mine was over an hour long. The student interview was a little more informal, but very informative and also conversational. Everyone and everything ran smoothly and on time, and it was a great experience!" Report Response
