What are your general comments?

"The day starts off with everybody meeting and eating breakfast (at 0730). From there, we went to a lecture room to discuss the school. Next was interviews. I first had an individual one with Dean Brown (who is very nice, as is the other interviewing dean), which was fairly informal about my application and why I chose medicine, etc. Then there was a lull time (during which a couple interviewees and I went to the John Hancock building to check it out), followed by the group interview. This wasn't too bad either, though like everyone says, it's mildly awkward. Everybody at the school is very nice and encourages you to come. Waiting is going to be tough as I would love to come to the school." Report Response
