What are your general comments?

"Interview was very conversational, so nothing threw me off guard. My interviewer was very interested in my background, interests and while I had a chance to talk about my interest in medicine, it wasn't the main focus of the interview. Felt like my interviewer was trying to get to know me as a person. At the same time, my interviewer had lots of comments especially when he found something interesting. Overall, a good experience.
