What are your general comments?

"ok - this is the place with the dreaded panel interview. its relaly not bad at all and i had a lot of fun with it. the key is leading the discussion with confidence, and never ever BSing them. they open with why md/phd - most people start with a chronological story, but i recommend (and brian does as well) that you start with the research you know best cause thats what they will be asking questions about. its a free form 20 minutes, so be prepared for anything. they are super super friendly and they smile and everything so don't worry too much. the faculty interviews are a breeze, and from what i understand they don't count too much. but they matter, and they are great experiences to talk to peopel you could be potentially doign your thesis with. the md interview was easy in comparison to everything else. low stress place (my experience at least) and they were all about recruiting.
