What are your general comments?

"Overall, I had a great day. I don't think that my interviews themselves went very well, as I wasn't very prepared. And I kept forgetting I was being interviewed because everyone is so freaking friendly!! I feel like I was a little too casual in conversation. The tour could have been a little more focused on the hospitals around USC. Also, the famous USC lunch was great, but don't get the salad!" Report Response
