What are your general comments?

"Everyone starts by sitting in a lounge, waiting. They then ask you to wait in line in order that you came in. They present some info about the school. Take on tours, seeming endless, around the brain museum. Offer ''optional'' library tour that everyone felt obligated to take, where they show exhibits about the history of medicine. Presentation, lunch where they quickly run out of food. Then you wait for your interviews. You have no idea when it will be, you just wait until someone comes to get you. No option to sit in on classes. A most unusual interview day." Report Response
