What are your general comments?

"There was a lot of sitting around and waiting at the beggining of the day (possibly because I got there pretty early). We then were given a presentation on the school and on financial aid, then ate lunch at the hospital cafeteria (which was pretty good). Then the interviewees were split into two groups, and one group had interviews while the other took a tour, then we switched. Overall, the students seemed like pretty normal people trying to pursue a medical career. The atmosphere was fairly relaxed and the professors seemed to be pretty chill according to the students."
