What are your general comments?

"I arrived at the admissions office before my 10:45am scheduled time and my interview was at 11:00am. I was given directions to the interviewer's office which was just down the hall. The interviewer was 10 minutes late due to a conference call. We had a wonderful conversation for about 50 minutes and I felt like she got to know me very well as a person and student. She walked me back to the admissions office while we chatted. Two first year students met me and one other applicant in the admissions office. They took us on a tour of the medical school and part of the medical center and answered all our questions. We were given a $5.25 voucher but this was not enough for lunch so I had to use some of my own money. The interview day was over at 1:00pm. " Report Response
