What are your general comments?

"Everyone was really nice. They gave different arrival times for the interviewers, so I freaked out a little when I arrived and a bunch of people were already there. The tour guide was really excited and helped calm the interviewees. Med students took us to the General Lewis Inn for lunch--one student who went with us was on the PBL track. The interviewers spoke to me more about how I felt about the surrounding area than why I wanted to be a physician, which seemed odd to me." Report Response
