What are your general comments?

"Breakfast and time to meet other interviewees (approx 20 of us) followed by info sessions, going to an M2 class, tour, lunch, and interviews. Everything was very laid back. Students and staff were very friendly and there to make your day as stress-free as possible. Student interview as extremely laid back (as in the girl asked me almost no questions). We talked, but mostly about upenn as opposed to me / my experiences. Faculty (clinician) interviewer was soooo nice. Probably my most enjoyable interview yet. Asked me easy questions and really seemed to like upenn. " Report Response
