What are your general comments?

"The day started off with Dr. Nipper giving us a welcome (very nice guy) and having us introduce ourselves. We had a couple presentations before heading off to the hospital for our interviews. I had 2 interviews, the first with a faculty member and the second with a student. They held them in empty patient rooms, which I thought was a little odd. My interviews were very low key, but some other interviewees I talked to had some really tough/somewhat strange questions (like sing your theme song). Then we had lunch and a tour of the hospital. We had a financial aid presentation and then a fond farewell from Dr. Nipper. Lastly, we went on a tour of the academic building and the campus. Quite a long day; definitely wear comfortable shoes! I stayed with a student host and highly recommend it. It costs $40/night, but they pick you up from the airport and drive you around and such. " Report Response
