What are your general comments?

"The first faculty member actually attended Rochester, and was a professor. His best friends were nobel prize winners and he had quite a history himself. But he was approachable and genuinely interested in my stories. And so even though his reputation was intimidating, he was great. The next faculty member embodied everything I want my future to be. She was an infectious disease, HIV/AIDS specialists with an MD/MPH. She was amazing, and was almost more of a mentor than an interviewer." Report Response
