What are your general comments?

"The student interviewer was hard to gauge, he generally asked from a list of questions and that felt kind of formal&#8230;he didnt give any verbal/nonverbal feedback so it was a little intimidating, but he was seemed to be paying close attention to what I said&#8230; His questions related almost entirely to medicine. The faculty interview was very conversational and low stress because it flowed and was natural, I ended up having fun and feeling like i learned something and wanted to go to school at UF.
