What are your general comments?

"The medical school itself was very pleasant, and the students during the tour were helpful and informative. Overall my interview experience was positive, at least with the first interviewer. I met with a surgeon who was very friendly and asked the usual interview questions with no intent to cause any stress. However, my second interviewer (a phd)harped over my low physical sciences score for a good twenty minutes, then repeatedly questioned my motivation for wanting to become a doctor, and also asked why i had no research experience. He asked what other schools i had applied to, and when i mentioned SUNY Stonybrook, he said, " I thought that was a good school". I dont think he truly meant to be malicious, however his interviewing skills did not impress me. " Report Response
