What are your general comments?

"An hour session where the assistant dean of admissions talks about the school and does a problem-based learning exercise with the medical students. 3 half-hour interviews. Lunch with the tour guides in the hospital cafeteria and a tour of the medical school. Half hour group session with the dean of the school (or maybe of admissions...I forget which), where he gave us the opportunity to ask more questions and learn more about the school. He said he didn't have any say in the admissions process so it was ''safe'' to ask him any questions." Report Response
