What are your general comments?

"The inteview was very relaxed. The morning was spent going over financial aid and housing and general information. Then we had the first interview with a student, which I spent over lunch. He made me feel very comfortable and just asked questions like "tell me about yourself". That lasted 35 minutes. Then I had my interview with a faculty member, which lasted 30 minutes. She was very chill and just asked about my activities and why I chose medicine. She hadn't really looked at my file, so I made sure to repeat all the activities I thought were important. When I left, I had a good feeling and felt very happy with the whole thing." Report Response
