What are your general comments?

"I had my interview in the morning, and that was the first part of the day. Everyone in the admissions office was extremely friendly, and after checking in, I got to meet some fellow interviewees. I was then sent to my interviewer's office within the medical campus. My interview experience was very positive and I felt totally at ease the entire time. After my interview, I headed back to the admissions office for a meeting with the dean. The meeting covered various things such as curriculum and financial aid. Near the end, two M2's came to take us to lunch and on a tour. " Report Response
