What are your general comments?

"After being welcomed, we were given an overview of the day. The interviews were held in the morning, after which we were given a clinical tour by an M3 student and resident. Next, we had lunch with a group of medical students. These then took us on a tour of the college itself. We had plenty of opportunities to ask questions about the school and student life. Overall, it was a great day. Just make sure you wear comfortable shoes, as you'll be doing a LOT of walking!" Report Response
