What are your general comments?

"we had breakfast with an enthusiastic OMM faculty member who pretty much covered most questions that we had. This was followed by waiting about for a couple of hours in the admissions office with the other candidates. It went by pretty quickly since everyone was friendly. The interview itself was laid back and friendly, however I was visibly stressed...really for no reason. I was asked a couple of tough questions about health care but I guess that that is fair game. The other interviewees said that they hadn't gotten any tough questions. My advice, trite but true, is really to just be yourself. " Report Response
