"We arrived at 9am, and had a lengthy tour of the neuro museum, anatomy lab, computer lab, clinical skills center, and library (ladies, wear flats, because some of those people like to talk, and a lot). We then had a presentation on their curriculum, ate lunch with some current M1s, and then waited for a long time in a student lounge for the interviewers to come and get us. It was a long day; I wasn't done until almost 4:30. Bring reading material with you in case you're left by yourself in the lounge. " Report Response
