What are your general comments?

"In the morning you go to the admissions office at 3 Rope Ferry Road. If you are hungry, you can grab a bite to eat across the parking lot at a tiny cafeteria. Come a bit early so you have time to look up information about your interviewers in the white binder they have in the room. They have a nice big room with comfy couches and a fire place. This is very conducive to a friendly environment, and everyone will be talking/getting to know each other. They give you a folder with your two interviewers, who may be at the hospital (doctors) or at the admissions office. You then go to a big board room where there is a Q/A session and Financial Aid session. Next you jump on the shuttle to the DHMC hospital, where you get a tour and lunch. People with interviews there will stay there, otherwise, some may come back to the admissions office for their two interviews. Afterwards, you may get some time to get to know your fellow interviewees even more back at the admissions waiting room. It is at this time that you may choose to leave if you want. If not, feel free to grab a cup of coffee or make yourself a cup of hot chocolate. Then two students come to give you a tour of the local facilities for medical students (ie classroom/labs). However, they do not show you the anatomy labs. I am wondering why. Overall, it was a good experience." Report Response
