What are your general comments?

"It really was an enjoyable day. You have nothing to be nervous about at all. Everyone is very friendly. I stayed at the holiday inn express, and the school sent a shuttle to pick up all the intervewees staying there, they also dropped us back off after the interview. The day starts out with an admissions presentation, then you learn about the cirriculum, rotations and financial aid. You then go in for your interview, have a building and grounds tour, eat lunch and go home. It was very laid back. " Report Response
