What are your general comments?

"The day starts with a little presentation on the school, with little on financial aid (getting tired of these talks). We then took a tour of the school. The facilities are all recently updated (plasmas in anatomy lab, clean multipurpose lab, comfy lecture halls). The students were all hanging out around the school, studying, socializing and whatnot, which is great to see. Interviews are next and while you are waiting a bunch of students rotate through to answer questions and whatnot. You wait in the common/cafe area, so lots of random students stop by too. We then had lunch, but rather than having lunch at the med school cafe, a group of us opted to pay to eat in the cafeteria; pretty good food and a great view of the Saco river and ocean. Overall, one of the two best interview days I've had (this was the last one too). Will be attending if a scholarship doesn't come through from another school." Report Response
