What are your general comments?

"I enjoyed the tour and special lunch with students. My interview didn't motivate at all. It was my first interview and I am a little discouraged. It was important that I used my interview to distiguish myself since my grades and MCATS are average. BUT i did't feel I had a real opportunity. The questions were vague and generic. She supposedly read my application but didn't ask specific questions about my background or experiences. MY ADVICE to interviewees is to SELL YOURSELF and INTERRUPT if they are talking too much."
