What are your general comments?

"Got there on time, parking was validated, and then I went for the tour with 4th year (i think) med students. There were only 6 of us being interviewed, which was nice because it was easier to ask questions and all. The first interview was with a med student, who basically asked questions about my file and would just write and nod as I spoke (which i find to be very annoying). She was nice though, and it was very low stress. Then I had an interview with a faculty member. That didn't go too well because he wouldn't really ask me questions, and there would be pauses. I'm sure I was supposed to say something then, but by that point I was tired and it was mad hot in the room so I just figured, whatever. Whatever indeed! I got rejected a week later. They're quick at least, its a very good thing, seriously." Report Response
