What are your general comments?

"I had an interview at 9am that lasted a half hour. Then I had to wait for an hour and had a meeting with the financial aid guy. Then I waited a half hour, met with the dean of the med school, had a tour, and ate lunch. Then I waited another hour, had a second interview lasting a half hour, and then waited another half hour until I was dismissed at 3:00. Apparently this was the first day of interviews for the year so it was a little disorganized. There were only four of us there, and the other three all happened to go to high school together. The tour guides were friendly but didn't really show us anything, and read directly off of sheets of paper." Report Response
