What are your general comments?

"They admissions staff, M.D.s, and Medical students are really nice and try to make the day as relaxed as possible. The orientation was so informative that I actually had no questions at the end. After the orientation the 2nd year medical students took us on a tour of the large facility (wear cozy shoes). The lunch was informal and a nice break. After lunch we saw the trauma center at University Hospital which was recently renovated and interesting. Soon we returned to the admissions office where we sat and waited for the interviews to begin. That was probably when I was the most nervous, but once the interviews started it was easy to settle down and besides waiting between the interviews everything went very quickly and smooth."
