What are your general comments?

"It was a pretty good experience considering it was a first-time interview event for us both (myself and the new school). I'd have felt more at ease with medical students being present though (instead of having only faculty and applicants), but that just wasn't possible seeing as I interviewed to be a part of the opening class in the school. Hopefully future application cycles will include GMS students as part of the Interview Day team. (Moi being one of them perhaps *wink* ?)" Report Response
