What are your general comments?

"Both interviews (faculty, student) were very relaxed and I was more nervous than I should have been!! My faculty interviewer was very non-intimidating and we talked about me, my undergrad school, education, research, etc. My student interviewer asked mostly about research and some of my shadowing stints, along with why I wanted to go into medicine. Both had obviously read my file well. " -Posted 11/24/2006 | Report Response
