What are your general comments?

"When you first arrive they take you to a lounge where you meet with the other prospective students and present you with your schedule for interviews. After a brief information session, they give you time to explore the University, go to classes and basically do whatever you want until the time of your interviews. Before lunch the Admissions Director gives a very informative discussion about the admissions process, the choices of campuses for the clinical clerkships and financial aid. After lunch two 2nd year students took us on a tour of the facilities and answer every question we had very frankly... They were really nice and helpful. Great experience overall." Report Response
