What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interviewers made me feel comfortable by staying away from my grades and MCAT scores. They seemed pleased with them. They were interested in getting to know me and how I felt about studying medicine. The day was lengthy, with the program beginning at 7:45 am and ending at 3:45 pm, with interviews from 11:00 - 12:20 pm. The admissions secretary really tried to calm us down with her interesting personality, while the medical students kept telling us to use those 20 minutes to highlight everything good about yourself and to justify any glitches."
