What are your general comments?

"The interviews weren't stressful, though they did go by very quickly...I ranked my performance a 6 b/c my 2nd interviewer asked me a question regarding one of my AMCAS activities that I wasn't expecting, and I fumbled the answer, which left me kind of flustered for the rest of the interview. It wasn't her fault...I just got rattled." -Posted 02/05/2006 | Report Response
