What are your general comments?

"overall, a very long day - expect that. both interviews were open file and asked me about specific experiences, quoted parts of my personal statement and asked me to expand. the interviewers were very nice and laid-back and all the students said that working at Scott&White is worth living in temple. overall, i didn't fall in love with the school, but i left liking it a lot more than when i came. they do a great job at selling the school's high points and a great place to come especially if you're interested in any type of primary care medicine. however, be ready for ethical questions and list questions in your interview."
