What are your general comments?

"Basically this day was overall low stress. It was my first interview so I think I worried too much. My student interview went very well. We had a lot in common and basically just chatted (backpacking, classical music, etc...). My faculty interview was with the one guy I heard other interviewees grumble over. He was very curt and wanted to convince me that I would give up everything to become a doctor. I didn't want to argue so I just kind of said what he wanted to hear. I knew he was from India, so I started talking about my travels in India and it turns out that I visited his home town in the Himalayan foothills. He seemed happy to talk about his city and then the interview was over as abruptly as it started. " Report Response
