What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview and was expectedly nerve-wracking. However my group was tremendously supportive of me and even cheered me on as I left for my faculty interview. I was thoroughly disappointed that the lady who interviewed me was retired. She didn't seem very interested in my motivations to become a doctor, rather questioned whether I was capable of it due to difficulties I had with grades. Granted that my grades are average and my MCAT scores are not phenomenal, I really felt that it was the first thing that struck her about me. My positive attitude about myself didn't seem to matter because it seemed like she had already made her mind about what she thought of me. It was tough, which made me nervous.Plus she was really old and squinted at me the whole time....not a good thing. The student interview was GREAT. He was really supportive of what I thought and genuinely seemed enraptured by what I had to say. I got to say what I felt and liked that he seemed to affirm what I thought about various issues. All in all, it was an okay interview experience. I wish everyone the best of luck in the interview process. Believe in your potential...that's the first step. Let them know that you know you'll be a great physician. Take care and good luck :)" Report Response
