What are your general comments?

"It's a pretty nice place to go to school. The area isnt the nicest but its tolerable. The students seem cool and so are the doctors that interview you. Also, there is someone that walks you to your interview room which is pretty nice. Lunch wasnt much just a sandwich, an apple, a small bag of chips and water. But I missed out on lunch with the med students because I had to go to my interview" Report Response
