What are your general comments?

"The interview was pretty laid back. I interviewed with two women, a professor and a woman on the admissions staff. There was supposed to be a third to-be-determined interviewer, but he/she was a no show. Three people interviewed immediately in the morning and then we were joined by people who were scheduled to be interviewed in the afternoon. We were then taken on a tour by a woman from the admissions staff and then taken out to lunch by three students at a restaurant. After that, we had a presentation from the PBL track dean and a presenation from the clinicals director. We were then given packets about financial aid. The three people who interviewed in the morning were free to go (around 1:30) while the afternoon interviewees stayed. " Report Response
