What are your general comments?

"The interview was great and well-organized. We watched a short video, and then all of the interviewers were brought into the room and introduced to us. This was much more impressive than what I've seen at other schools, where interviewees are told to wait somewhere while interviewers may or may not show up several minutes late. The students seemed very close and enthusiastic and I love that the school is literally within the hospital. The best part was finding out I was accepted less than a week following my interview."
