What are your general comments?

"The interview starts at 8 (with continental breakfast), Dean Wofsy gives an intro talk (that is incredible and very sincere and informative), a talk by the financial aid staff, and then they hand out individual packets (9:30 ish). Unfortunately, school was out of session, so we couldn't sit in on a class. We had lunch at 11 am (only lunch I've been on that didn't have students at it - it was just the interviewees), a tour at 12, and most of us had interviews at 1 and 2:30 at different locations (like SF General Hospital) - they were great about getting us to our shuttles, and traveling was easy. The interviewees were by far the most diverse and intersting group of people I've seen at any interview. Would love to be classmates with them. Overall, great day. My two interviews were with faculty - one woman and one male, both physicians. Very laid back, and conversational." Report Response
