What are your general comments?

"Breakfast in the morning with a few students all who seemed pretty nice (though the niceness of the breakfast is overrated - if you hate eggs, like me, then you're kinda out of luck). Then a quick, 45 minute long orientation + financial aid session. Most people only have one interview, though about half of us had two: the regular open-file interview which is about 1hour and half long and then a 20-30 minute closed file interview. The tour is pretty intimate (ours had 4 people only because 1 tour guide couldn't make it) and lunch was really yummy. At lunch, you eat one-on-one with someone, either faculty or a med student. I got a med student, but it was the same person who gave me the tour so though he was really sweet it would have been nice to get another student's perspective. There was a lot of downtime in the afternoon so read something (I recommend the Dis-O guide that they provide - very informative and funny!)" Report Response
