What are your general comments?

"I got there around 11:45 and was escorted to the waiting room. An admissions officer came in and welcomed every one to their ''low stress'' interview (she kept stressing the fact that the interviews will be low stress). Then we all went on a tour and had lunch. Afterwards i waited some more for the interviewer. He was an MD and seemed really nice. His tone of voice was especially relaxing. He asked general questions about my application. No tough questions and no ethics. I was impressed with the fact that he is an alum of Downsate. The interview itself did not seem amazingly special, but since then i've been accepted to the school!!!!!" Report Response
