Haha, I really didn't get very far, just sort of walked around the hallways looking lost. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall I had a great time. The students were really friendly, they invited me into their lecture hall to listen to a guest speaker talk about hemotology (I was just sitting in the hallway waiting at the time). The hospital was pretty amazing and really big. I was supposed to have 3 people interview me, but the medical student wasn't there, so I just had 2 clinicians. One was really nice and jolly, the other seemed a bit more stern, but he wasn't unfriendly at all. I think the interview went well, much more calm and relaxed than I thought it would be.
