What are your general comments?

"Went into the office and waited, some lady came to get us and bring us to a converence room where we met with Dr. Sanford. He gave us an overview of the school, then gave us a case study and had us discuss what was wrong with the patient step by step and our hypotheses on what could be wrong (not bad at ALL don't worry). Then we waited for our interviewers to pick us up and you went to each one at a time (two faculty and one student interviewer). Then there were two medical students that picked us up and took us to lunch and on a tour of the facilities. They had no bearing whatsoever on the selection process so def ask them lots of questions if you have them. Then we met with the Dean of Students and he also wanted to get our input, feedback and questions because he also didn't have a say in the selection process. Then you're free to go....9:30am-3pm, it def goes the whole day. But it was not stressful, it was my first interview and im glad it was because it put me at ease and made me feel confident in myself." Report Response
