What are your general comments?

"Great to have 4th year medical students giving the campus tour--they have a wealth of knowledge and this was the best school tour I've ever had. Enjoyed both the Boston and Maine aspects of my interviews for this school--but especially the Maine part. The medical center was so welcoming and I really enjoyed the special touches like the car tour of Portland and the MMC mints. My interviewers in Portland knew my AMCAS application better then any interviewers I've had elsewhere. Love this school." Report Response
