What are your general comments?

"This was actually a really nice interview. The people are really really nice and the students are uber excited about their school and about medicine in general. I thought it was really cool that some of the M2's stayed at the end to answer questions even though they had a review session for an exam in progress. The interview is really low key. They are genuinely there to see what type of student you are and if you're a fit in their school. You can't really prepare for this type of interview but to be yourself so you're not a nervous wreck." Report Response
