What are your general comments?

"My host brought me to admissions at 7:30. Breakfast and coffee were served. Dean Fishleder gave us an overview of the program, including details of the curriculum, and gave us a tour of the school. Then we had a financial aid talk with Elizabeth Myers. Next was a one-hour tour of the research building, with two twenty-minute visits with two lab PIs, and then an hour-long tour of the hospital, given by a student. Wear comfy shoes!!! I wore clogs the whole time and just put on dress shoes for the interviews, and I am SO glad I did. After the tours we had lunch with students, then two faculty interviews. Next was a 40-minute demonstration of the web portal, and finally a wrap-up session. Whole day, 7:45-4:30. The interview group was 6 people, which was apparently a large group for them."
