What are your general comments?

"The interview and the whole day was very relaxed and easy-going. So don't stress out about it. A few people who were interviewed earlier in the day were asked about their grades or MCAT scores though. Angie and Annette in the Admissions Center are incredibly nice and friendly. The students at lunch were also nice and honest. One student was married and said that there's a campus organization for the spouses and significant others of students, which is pretty nice. If you have time before your interview, check out the downtown area. I'm from a metropolitan area so I'm used to having a lot of options for entertainment, shopping, arts, dining, etc. but I was pleasantly surprised to find a lot of little shops and restaurants as well as a theatre, a movie theatre, and a Carnegie Hall."
