What are your general comments?

"The school is amazing! The faculty interviews are typically only 30 minutes but mine started early and ran late. Questions were kept to a minimum and we mainly talked. It appeared as if certain applicants missed the memo of it being relaxed in tone. All of my interviewers were great. The M2s that interviewed the applicants just had an exam and still had prepared unique and fun questions. Both the most interesting and most difficult questions were during the medical student group discussion." Report Response
