What are your general comments?

"Arrived at 8:00am and filled out a bunch of paperwork on prior coursework and financial aid stuff. The Dean of admissions came in and explained the admissions process and told us exactly when the decision would be made. Then we had interviews. Both of mine were surgeons. They each took about 1hr, they were semi-open file and really laid back. Then we had lunch and went on the tour. They are really accommodating, in that they matched me up with a student host of my same religion and then matched up us non-trads with a non-trad tour guide. It was a very positive experience.
