What are your general comments?

"This was the worst interview experience I ever had. This was my 7th interview!!! My first interview was with the admissions director (not a PhD or an MD). It was very dry. I could seem to be able to get a conversation going. She just wasn't having it! She kept looking away and fixing her scarf. It looked like she did not want to be there. She asked me about my experiences (pretty standard) and lots of ethical question (abortion, death, pvt... you name it... she covered everything). After this I thought the 2nd interview couldn't be worst than the 1st one. Boy was I wrong. The 2nd interviewer (an MD) was arguing with me. He was very confrontational. He kept asking circular questions!!! He ripped my answers apart and asked very detailed questions about ethics and healthcare. Anyway, I just remained calm and answered the best way I could. I was not nervous at all. But the guy was a total asshole. The students didn't seem to be very happy there. I liked the feel of the school but if the actual interview is any indication of how they treat their students I don't want to go there at all!!! They way it stands right now... It is my last choice.
