"Started meeting in the admissions office where I got to know the other applicants that were there. First interview with faculty who was extremely out-spoken, dropping the f-bomb and such and when he asked me about a wild time I had wouldnt take anything less than a wild wild time. Student interviewer was awesome and she even keeps in touch now. Stony Brook is really pretty, everyone seems happy and I think it would be a great place to go to medical school!" Report Response
