What are your general comments?

"I felt really relaxed and ready for my interview. When we got there, we were given a small breakfast and were given some time to talk to fellow applicants. We then were led down to the assistant dean's office where he gave us a short powerpoint presentation on the school, the curriculum, and the hospitals. We were then met by a PhD who came and spoke about the research opportunities available for medical students and how all of the faculty would love to have us come work with them. Then it was time for my interview. The interview started off ok, but then it seemed like my interviewer had heard enough from me and began to discuss what the school had to offer, etc. I spoke to the assistant dean about this and he was incredibly helpful, talking to my interviewer and making sure things went ok. (It turned out alright!) Then we went on a tour of the amazing campus and brought back for lunch - which featured some amazing food and great conversation with eight or nine medical students ranging from M1 to M4. This was the best part of the day because you can really let loose and ask everything you ever wanted to. After lunch, it was time for a short financial aid talk and a wrap-up by the assistant dean. I was very impressed by the day and I was very pleased by the school and all of the opportunities it offers. Oh, and I believe there were nine of us present for my interview day!" Report Response
