What are your general comments?

"Academic Interviewer was extremely nice. We talked for over an hour and the whole thing was extremely positive and reaffirming. The Personal Interviewer was a complete jerk to me. He really turned me off to the school. If it hadn't have been for the really cool academic interview and really awesome students I met, I'd have left hoping to never come back. Given everything though, I thought the school was pretty cool. Seems like it would be one of the more relaxing places to study medicine with a bunch of awesome classmates. People aren't as worried about class rank as they are at other schools and I thought that was pretty cool." Report Response
