What are your general comments?

"Overall pretty chill. The introduction was kind of boring, and the room was very hot so it was hard to stay focused. A 4th year med student came in and talked to us about how great he thought the school was, then had a financial aid presentation- very informative. Had our interviews- one on one- and then had a tour of the facilities. Looked at the dorms, which were pretty freshman year of college but very convenient and affordable for NY. Afterwards we had lunch, then we were free to go. " Report Response
