What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview and I had a wonderful time; it felt like a mini-vacation. I arrived at SFO the day before and spent some time with family that lived in the greater SF area. It was exciting to finally get to the Quality Inn and as time went by the interview experience become more real. The staff and the actual room at the Quality Inn were awesome. The day of the interview, it was nice to meet and get to know other people from different parts of the country. Dr. Haight was great. He really did make us feel at ease by coaching and teaching us what to expect throughout the day. The Financial Aid and MPH portions were very informative. The tour guides were great; open and honest. Everyone that I met seemed to really want to be there and after that interview experience I can see why. You can really feel the non-competitive atmosphere in the air and if accepted that's where I'll be attending." Report Response
