What are your general comments?

"Showed up to the hospital about 45 minutes early. Parked in parking structure ''A'' althugh ''B'' would have been fine as well. There is no sense in trying to find the school yourself, just ask the first information desk you see. Checked in at the admissions office. They have a hostess from the Wake Forest Medical Guild (Spouses Club) that help out during the day. I saw previous posters suggest that this was sexest, but I think there is nothing wrong with family members trying to be involved in the community where their spouses work, whether they are male or female it really doesn't matter. We received a presentation on admissions (7500 applicants last year(entering class of 2007), 500 interviewed, about half of them accepted). Received a wonderful financial aid presentation. Then went to lunch with current MS2s. There were 6 of us in the interview group, after lunch 3 of us went with a couple MS1s for a tour, the other 3 did interviews and then we switched. The interviews were very short and very easy, made me wonder how important they could really be in the application process. We were done by 330pm. " Report Response
