What are your general comments?

"I participated in a program at UAB med school this past summer and I was impressed, so I had high expectations for the interviews. I was happy that all interviews were in the same place, but I think that the interviewers were tired from interviewing so many students at once. One interviewer seemed very disinterested and asked me if I had considered going to graduate school. I took this to mean that she felt I wasn't qualified for medical school. She was hard to talk to and wasn't very friendly. The other two interviewers were pretty nice, but one didn't ask many questions we had casual conversation about non-related topics." Report Response
