What are your general comments?

"You get there and they talk about how great the school is. Mike Itswan is a super guy. You divide into two groups, one interviews first the other listens to the dreadful financial aid speech and gets a tour. Interview with a student and a member of faculty. They straight up tell you that one of your interviewers is on the Adcom, which is nice. I thought I interviewed the best of all the schools I have interviewed at, but was asked for a 3 interview. Where I was asked for the 12th time if my dad (a local orthopod) pushed me into medicine... ahh, these people must not realize having a physician as a parent isn't exactly the best advertisement for the field. Oh well, winged that, listened to them try to sell the school again, Left. 1230-430. The group was 60 people and we were there for 4 hours, also we get our decision response fast. Why are other schools, who interview less, sooo much slower. " Report Response
