What are your general comments?

"I was interviewed by two faculty members, both MDs. It was a slow interview day, so even the Dean of Admission conducted interviews. Both doctors were probing and asked very specific questions about my activities on campus as well as my interests. My first interview centred a lot on my extracurriculars and my research, and we ended up speaking about the value of diversity in education. The second interview was even more fun - we spoke at length about my interest in music, my research, and used that as a springboard to momentarily speak about my drive to enter medicine. BOth were truly enjoyable and interesting interviews." Report Response
