What are your general comments?

"the interview should have been relaxing, but for whatever reason my interviewer was challenging my desire to pursue medicine. She picked my application apart asking me to defend all the faults I have. Hopefully I gave her enough ammunition to combat the same questions people on the committee will ask. I have done many interviews, so I know that she was attacking me. Look below to see the questions. It might have just been her style, and maybe it will pay off." Report Response
