What are your general comments?

"yeesh. this was ridiculous. i guess it was just my experience, though. i think i may have done a whole 10 minutes of actually talking about my life in the two interviews combined. and one of the guys was a stand-in because they had screwed up our scheduling for that day, so they had to find me a different interviewer or something to that effect. the city/hospital there would be a great, diverse place to learn good clinical medicine, but the day just really rubbed me the wrong way and left me stressed out.
