What are your general comments?

"The day started at about 8:45AM in the LMU library. We were given a presentation by the assistan dean of admissions and then the dean talked to us. He seemed like a great guy. Following that we were given a presentation on the preclical curriculum. I liked that it was system's based as it helps teach the curriculum more effectively. They will also have patient actors and simulators to help teach the students to interact with patients. After that we were given a presentation on the 3rd and 4th year. They said most of the hospitals were within a 60 mile radius. In your fourth year you also have an option to go to other sites during your electives. After that the interviews started. We waited in the room and interacted with the other applicants until they called us for our interview. The interview was 30 minutes and it was 2 interviewers to one applicant. They had their set questions, but my interviewers made it conversational too. I got 2 ethical questions/ scenarios as well. They said that they were also going to take notes which was okay. Overall, my interviewers were very friendly and awesome. At around 12:00 we took a tour of the lmu campus and town in a van and then ate lunch. Then we did a survey of our experience at the interview. The day ended around 2PM" Report Response
