What are your general comments?

"We started at 8am with a brief overview of the day. Admissions then discussed our individual schedules for the day. The dean discussed different aspects of the school. By 10am, we were taken to a 1st year lecture. Afterwards we had lunch with 4th years, who didn't seem as welcoming as I would've liked. Afterwards we were given a campus tour. The interviews with a faculty member anda student followed. Interview times varied with each applicant. I got lucky and was done at 3:30 rather 5pm like the interview email said, although some students interviewed until the. Both interview were really cool. I enjoyed my convo with the faculty about my opinions about healthcare today. Also, my student interviewer was very down to earth and it was very conversational. " Report Response
