What are your general comments?

"My biggest complaint is a serious lack of structure for the interview day. When everybody got to the waiting room one student got called back by their interviewer before anyone from the school even welcomed us and told us what was going on. It was nice to have both interviews in the morning and get them over with. While we were waiting the dean came in and visited with everybody which was cool. After the interviews we went on a student led tour and had lunch. That was it. No presentation by someone from the school about the curriculum, grading, financial aid, clinical experience etc...nothing. They just handed us a packet of information on the school when we arrived when we arrived in the morning and that all, not even a schedule for the day. Quite underwhelming to say the least.
