What impressed you negatively?

"There is a lot of construction going on so the area wasn't the most pleasant to look at, but in the future it is going to look great with the new Walter Reed Army medical center. Just a cautionary not because the construction will likely going on for the next couple years at least I would imagine. " Report Response

"I felt pretty prepared. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I might be a little biased because I am fairly certain the military is right for me to begin with. Medicine and the military are just combining my two dreams. By the way the interview format is two 30 minute one-on-one interviews with either a fourth year student or a faculty member (usually at least one high ranking officer but they are not intimidating at all.)"
