What are your general comments?

"We were taken to a room in the library where we were ''checked in'' and given folders by the admissions staff. The dean of the school then came in and gave the ''spiel'' for the school. We were then taken on a tour of the school and hospital and met back in the room for lunch and talking with current students (1st and 2nd years). We then waited for one of our two interviewers to come get us to begin the interview process. Some had faculty first and others had students first. After that we heard from the Office of Student Opportunities and were free to go." Report Response
