What are your general comments?

"You have two interviews- one with faculty, and one with a med student. Each has 3 standard questions that they ask you (6 total), that I think they ask everyone. <p> I stayed at the Quality Inn University. It looks a little shady when you drive up, but it's pretty nice inside, they have a pool, and it's just down the road from MSU. Just ask for a room that's far from the pool!" Report Response
