What are your general comments?

"Arrived and met with current students. All were friendly and honest. Had coffee and talked with them about the school. Shown a powerpoint on the school and various facets of student life from financial aid to extracurricular groups/activities. Brought back out and half toured school, other half waited for interview. Based on last year's SDN feedback, expected 3 on 1 panel with a student, science prof., and clinician. Instead I was now told it would be 1 on 1. Interviewer came out ot get me, told me to relax and took me to room where the other interviewer was, for my 2 on 1 panel interview. I think it got better as it went, but some Qs in beginning were a little tough. and these were tougher given that I was told to relax and expect nothing stressful. Afterward, toured (beautiful) school+facilities, ate lunch with guides as a student flag football game was beginning. Then was free to go. " Report Response
