What are your general comments?

"Surprisingly, my interview was CLOSED-FILE. All the postings on interview feedback I had read were all open-file, so that was what I was expecting. My interviewer really never asked me any questions. He glanced at the first sheet of my AMCAS and saw my major and wanted to know why I chose it and secondly, why medicine. The he told me about himself and how he got into medicine (a very interesting story, I might add). The interview was totally conversational and seemed to be very informal. He told me the reason he liked to do closed-file interviews was to get a "gut feeling" about the candidate and their desire to be a doctor. Overall, the interview went really well and my interviewer was very easy to talk to." Report Response
