What are your general comments?

"I liked that I was sent all over the campus to find my interviewers; it gave me a feel for the layout of the buildings that I wouldn't have found through a tour guide. Both of my interviewers were physicians, and they were both very charming. It was a real pleasure speaking with them. They had a genuine interest in my personality, and were both patient and engaging. Dr. Foxwell's talk with us afterward was the best meeting I've had so far with any assistant deans of admissions. My only complaint was food; the sammich's vegetables were looking a little nasty. And yeah, everyone was friendly and showed a strong appreciation for the School." Report Response
