What are your general comments?

"Well the interview started at 10am. You meet the students in the admissions office then you are escorted to a room where you talk to the assistant dean of admissions and financial aid. Then you tour the school and the JCMC with current med students. This is a time to ask anything you can think of. A really fun time. Then I had two interviews and my day was over by 4pm. It was a great day, I was actually sad to be leaving. I wold have stayed if I could have. For those of you that will be future prospective students, you're going to absolutely love the school. Good luck!!" Report Response
