What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was very relaxed and the people there were awesome. The day flew by. If you have an interview at OSU then you shouldn't sweat it. If your interviewer seems like they are done with his or her questions and its only been like 15 or 20 minutes then ask questions and try to engage into a conversation, just make sure you try to be genuine. I do not know if he meant to, but at the end of the interview I was told that it seemed that I would get a lot of interviews (even though my MCAT wasn't anything special) and to remember to keep OSU in mind..."
