What are your general comments?

"My interview was at 11am. I drove up the night before, and stayed at the Iowa House hotel. Before the interview, we met with the dean of student affairs, and dean of admissions. After that, we met with an M4 for the CBL session. The CBL was so much fun, and very relaxing. The M4 student was also friendly and made the session relaxing and enjoyable. You don't need any medical experience to be able to answer questions, because the case was not difficult. After that I interviewed with two faculty members, had lunch with an M2, and a tour of the school. The interview was as short as usual, and I feel like there were a some things I could have added. The M2 tour guide was really nice and approachable. Overall, I had a positive experience." Report Response
