"Nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There are three 20 minute interviews. It sounds really stressful, but it's really not. Just make sure to get points across about yourself if you want to because once the hostess knocks on the door it is time for you to rotate to the next interviewer. All the interviews were very conversational and the interviewers only look at your personal statement from the AMCAS application so make sure you know it well because most of the things that end up being discussed come from that."
