What are your general comments?

"The interviews were more stressful than I anticipated based on other feedback. I had some very difficult questions that I was not anticipating. Also, my interviews were given by 2 MD's, not an MD and Med student like most other people have posted. The rest of the time was very casual and gave me a good feeling about the school. I had a lot of free time to wander around and sit in on classes. The 2 interviews, lunch, a short tour, and a 15 minute welcome were really the only planned events for the day. " Report Response
