What are your general comments?

"I crove down from Atlanta and arrived at MCG around 7:30a.m. I parked in the 15th St parking deck which is free. The day didn't begin until around 9:00a.m., although they tell you to arrive by 8:30a.m. We were assigned interviewers (two) and introduced to the School by the Director of Admissions. After introductions we were escorted to our interviews. I know my interview (first) was the furthest from the Kelly Administration builiding because it took about 20 -25 minutes to get there. I got lost on my way back, but I nice grounds keeper drove me back to the building in his buggy. My first interview lasted about 45 minutes, and it was located in the Georgia Prevention Institute building by the Bojangles. My first interview (non-committee member) was a cardiologist from China and a basic science researcher. After arriving back we went on the tour given by two students. We went to the Children's Hospital, adult hospital and the gross anatomy lab. The tour took about an hour. After the tour we went back to the Kelly Administration building and had lunch. Lunch was very good! We met with the Dean of Admissions, Mason Thompson and had lunch with him. After lunch we had our second interviews in the evening. My second interview lasted about an hour and ten minutes. I think my interviews were longer because I had a lot to talk about and the conversation was interesting. Both my interviewers seemed intrigued and there was not a moment of silence at any time. They do ask if there are any questions, and I asked a lot! " Report Response
