What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was great. The cramed 8 of us in a tiny room to sweat to death and wait for our interviewers to come and get us. Then, they take you out one at a time, over a 2.5 hour period (don't be the last person). The interview was very laid back and the guy said ''I want to be able to convice the Adcom to admit you, so help me get to know you better''. Then you get a tour of the hospital (kind of old, but being new construction is everywhere), and then you get a really really good lunch!" Report Response
