What are your general comments?

"My interviewer spent most of the time writing down what I was saying and didn't ask anything too out of the ordinary. There is a bit of downtime during which you can sit in on a lecture. I thought things were going well until we had our tours. One of the tour guides was particularly vocal about how much he disliked people from California. I thought he was joking at first but when he continued to goad people about it I realized he lacked any sense of tact. Not someone I would want to go to school with let alone have as my doctor.
