What are your general comments?

"Overall it was an enjoyable day. My first interview was great, my interviewer and I had a very casual conversation about the present state of medicine and the stresses of applying to medical school (he had a daughter go through the process last year). One of the best interviews I've yet to have. If only the second interview was the same. My interviewer was a very arrogant surgeon. When I first took a seat he asked me a very general question, as I began to answer he picked up the phone and made a call. While I tried to answer the question, he was scheduling different surgeries for the next day. Very RUDE. Once he completed the call he asked me another question, after I finished answering he stared at me for a good 30 seconds. After every question he would just stare. I felt very uncomfortable. The interview didn't last very long, and believe me I was thankful for that. It was too bad that an otherwise great day had to be ruined by a jerk. " Report Response
