What are your general comments?

"Stayed with family about an hour away, so I arrived about 30 min early. We got started around 8:30am when Dr. George and Dr. Krueger talked about the school and the PBL curriculum. Interviews began around 9:30 with each of use assigned a specific time slot when we'd be called out for the 30-40min interview with 2 faculty members (2-on-1). After the interviews we went on a tour of the campus. It's a brand new building and kept extremely clean (no food/drink except for in the cafeteria). Then we had lunch (sandwich rolls with chips, drinks, and a pudding like dessert) with just us and couple current med students where we were able to ask questions ''off the record'' and get honest feedback from the students. They were very honest and seemed to genuinely enjoy the school and the PBL style. After lunch a local realtor came into to give us some brief info on the area, she offers her services free of charge to students and after a few emails back and forth seems very helpful and willing to answer any question. We ended with some financial aid information and were done around 1:30pm. Overall it was fairly pain-free. The interviews are pretty structured in that they use a form with ''pre-formed'' questions that they don't deviate too much from and jot down notes while you answer so don't expect a conversational interview."
