What are your general comments?

"I was a lot more impressed than I originally thought I would be. I lived in Columbus for a few years before so I was somewhat familiar with the area and more familiar with the city as a whole. There is a wealth of things to do in Columbus and the weather was beautiful that day which helped. This was my first interview so I was nervous, but everyone there was relaxed and friendly. I thought the interview didn't go too well, as the interviewer said at the end that he probably would have liked to see more medical experiences on my application (even though I have numerous instances of shadowing, volunteering and research) but I guess it went ok as I was accepted two weeks later.
