What are your general comments?

"The interviews went well, although my first interview asked me alot of stuff about my engineering major, which was the last thing I expected to be asked about (simply because no one else had asked about it before, save for why I switched...). Interviewer was nice, sweet, very conversational. My second interview - the interviewer assigned to me did not show, and a substitute was given. She was also very nice and sweet and conversational. Good conversation. The tours were pretty good, organized, and flowed smoothly. Lunch was ok, talking to med students was great. The rest of the afternoon was very informative. The senior video was partly funny, partly weird... and the Britney Spears parody was... well done ;-)" Report Response
