What are your general comments?

"When I woke up and turned on the TV, the weather channel announced it was -4 degrees. By the time I got to the school, it was a mere +5 degrees. I was freezing walking in. A kind lady from the admissions office greeted me and held my frozen hands and said, ''Let me warm your hands! We are so glad to meet you. We've been looking forward to seeing you for a long time!'' They knew me individually. The interviewers didn't even open my file before me, but asked specific things about my education, past career, and family, even a specific story I shared in my application essay. I really felt they liked me already, and were just trying to prove it. Kirksville is far away from a lot of things I'm used to, but it really felt like family when I walked in. The students were enthusiastic and kind and excited about becoming doctors. It was a wonderful experience." Report Response
