What are your general comments?

"i thought it went well. im glad i didnt do my interview first thing i got there. going on the tour and talking to students made my answer to ''why evms'' alot more genuine. I had time to collect my thoughts and give an answer from first hand experience. I like how they emphasized clinical experience. which i think is a plus. the student body is what attracts me the most. they seem like work hard party hard types. alot of social activities are planned throughout the year.
