What are your general comments?

"I was surprised at how many people they interviewed on the same day. There were quite a few of us there. I interviewed in the morning, then we had an informational session where a faculty member told us about the changing curriculum, a fourth year talked about the last two years of the program, and there was a presentation on financial aid. After, we went on a brief tour of Light Hall and the library. Then we had lunch and there was an optional tour of Children's Hospital. I would recommend taking it; the hospital is amazing."
