What are your general comments?

"There were about 5 other people interviewing that day, which was nice just having a few people. We watched a video about the school and then had the interviews. My first guy was vary positive and upbeat. They are allowed to read you essays and statements, but not know your grades or MCAT scores so that they do not bias their interview score. The next guy was a little more rigid in his questioning format, but loosened up toward the end. Then we all had lunch and took a tour of the Standardized Patient labs, the simulators, and the other areas of the medical school. Lastly, the option was giving to sit in a gross anatomy class."
