What are your general comments?

"Got there early and just sat and chatted with other interviewees. There were only 7 of us. The tours of the hospital and school were really good. The lunch witht the dean and students and financial aid was informative. The weatrher was gorgeous and I also love the fact that it is like 20 minutes from virginia beach. I had to cancel my appointment with the office of minority affairs because the administrator had an emergency to attend to. I do not actually know what we were going to discuss though, her secretary said that she would call me next week. Because of that I had about 1.5 hours of down time before my interview. i just went to the library and read some of a novel I had brought with me. My interview was 25 min with a pediatric surgeaon, med student and i think a member of the community. It was a good interview. And that was it" Report Response
