What are your general comments?

"The interview weekend is a bit of a marathon. The schedule for us was: Dinner Thursday night with current students. Friday: Information session and talks by program faculty followed by interviews with PSTP program faculty (2) and for the medical (seperate interview that doesn't matter for the PSTP) followed by dinner and a trip to a bar with current students. Saturday: Brunch with current students then interview with current students (2 at once) then a catered dinner with current students and faculty at a faculty member's house. Overall, the weekend is fun and not too stressful, and all the chances to talk to the current students and program faculty allowed me to get a great sense of the program." Report Response
