What are your general comments?

"Flight was terrible, sat on the tarmac for two hours and circled Philly for an hour before landing. The way back was even worse. The Jeff interview team was fine, all I missed was the large group lecture from the Director of Admissions. After a couple of talks at us (group of 20 or so) we had the very casual student interview, lunch, then a tour. The faculty interview was delayed because he was seeing patients, but he was a calm, friendly dude. " Report Response
