What are your general comments?

"The day begins with an orientation that lasts about an hour. Then the panel interview, which is about an hour and fifteen minutes. I was a little anxious about the panel format, but it ended up being really relaxed and fun! Of course, a big reason for that is the two applicants that I was interviewing with could not have been cooler and the interviewers were funny and friendly. However, the rest of my interview group all seemed to have positive experiences also, so really don't stress about the panel! The 20-30 minute interview with the dean is open-file and also laidback. She asked typical questions: Why Northwestern, why medicine, etc." Report Response
