i've been looking at most of the interview days at the schools i got invites to and a lot of them are 9-10 hrs. not only that, but they put interviews at the end of the day when most people probably wont even be able to see straight from fatigue at that point. Why do medical schools do it this way? it doesnt seem hard to just give people a 15 minute opening, two 30 minute interviews, do a 30 minute faculty tour, maybe another 30 mins through a hospital, giving a random 30 minute lecture financial aid, curriculum, and closing address - 5 minutes. send everything else by mail or give us paperwork on it. that's like around 3 hrs. why on earth are they 9 hrs?
