What are your general comments?

"The day is pretty long...you talk with Beth Ann the admissions cordinator first, you have to rank where you would like to do your 3rd and 4th year rotations before you do anything else. Luckly the med student I stayed with gave me a little extra info on this. Then you go on a tour and grab lunch...After lunch (1pm) interviews start. Each person waits until the previous person is done interviewing to meet with an physician and 4th med student. If you are the eighth person in line, you'll have a very long day." Report Response
