What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed my interview experience here! My student interviewer was very friendly, and asked non-threatening "tell my about yourself and why you want to be a doctor"-type questions. My faculty interviewer was also very friendly and talkative, and gave me the impression that he really liked meeting me. However, I did not enjoy meeting witht he Director of Minority Affairs. They did not tell that it was going to be an interview beforehand, (they called it a "meeting"). She asked the same exact questions that I had already been asked twice before, so I was pretty tired of answering at that point." Report Response
