What are your general comments?

"The MSTP committee is extremely helpful, and pay for your visit. Everyone was really conversational and helped me get from place to place (all the research professor interviews are in their offices). You'll get a schedule that outlines all this. Though all the MSTP kids only had 1 MD interview, while MD only kids had 2-3. I appreciated that actually, a break was nice. There's plenty of time to be social with the other applicants, though all of us were so exhausted that it got a little quiet." Report Response
