"First off, one of the admissions people highlight the program offered at the school to all the interviewers for the day.Then all the interviewers told each other about them selves. Then we are told how to get to our interviews, either by shuttle or by foot. I chatted with the other people till my first interview. My first interview was with a med student (year 2 also called M2), it went very nice and we had a nice conversation that lasted 20 min after our interview. I then went and interviewed with a doc for 30 min. After that, it was lunch time!! The food was great! Then the day was capped with the tour of the campus. The day went very well." Report Response
