"Tell me about yourself. (this is right after I sat down). I blabbed for about 5 minuutes, then asked if he'd like me to take my autobiographical escapade any particular direction. After a few moments thought, he suggested I focus on 'things that will help me get into medical school.' So I blabbed somemore, until we finally went off on a tangent. Thing were good from there, but I would suggest you be prepared with a plan if they just ask you to sit down and start talking." Report Response
