What are your general comments?

"The day starts early - 7:30! They give you a continental breakfast and then Dean Lappin talks about the school and the admissions process. Afterwards you wait for your interview with one of the deans and your panel interview. The individual interview is a chance to update your application and highlight parts of it. The panel interview is not near as bad as I thought it was going to be. Definitely take the down time after the talk by Dean Lapin to talk to the other applicants in your panel - it helps a lot! Walking into the interview with a sense of familiarity (within the limits of what can be established in an hour or two) really helps. All the med students I talked to were really enthusiastic about the school - from the ones that dropped by to find fellow undergrads in the morning to the tour guides." Report Response
