What are your general comments?

"I went to this interview expecting not to like the school very much but was amazed at how much fun I had. The students had lives outside of medical school and the hospital facility was really nice. My student interviewer was a little strange and when we got our interviewer assignments even all the other students said ''Oh you got So-and-so'' with little enthusiasm. Faculty though was very considerate and nice. Most importantly I really enjoyed all of the other applicants that I interviewed with. I would really enjoy all of them as future classmates" Report Response
