What are your general comments?

"I've interviewed at 10 schools and this by far was the most unpleasant, stressing, negative experience I've had. Both of my interviewers were unfriendly, grilled me about every answer I gave, and just in general weren't fun to be around. In fact, one asked me why I want to go into medicine and I responded with my usual answer. Now bear in mind, I have a very unique motivation, and it has struck a chord with every interviewer prior to this one. My UNC interviewer responded, "Well that's different, but it's still not very compelling." UNC has a great reputation and the tuition is dirt-cheap. If you get an interview here, I'd say take it for these reasons, but just hope you don't get the same interviewers I did. They completely turned me off of this school." Report Response
