What are your general comments?

"The admissions director was quite frank with those of us interviewing that day, and said that most of us will have very stress-free talks with faculty while some may have to answer some tough questions. Unfortunately, I fell in the latter category since I've taken some time off doing non-medically related activities. During the interview, no matter how I tried to explain my choices and decisions, I felt like I wasn't quite getting through to my interviewer" Report Response
