What are your general comments?

"First I met with Dr. Case, who briefed me on what would happen during the day. He also asked a bunch of interview questions; even though it wasn't classified as an interview, it felt like one. Then I had another interview that lasted around 30 minutes. Next was lunch and tour with a fourth-year medical student. He knew everything about the school, so the tour was good for information that Dr. Case doesn't give. After that, there was yet another interview that lasted about 30 minutes as well. This interview was the hardest for me, because I was tired and started to get nervous again. They tell you before you interview what your interviewers' positions are, so that was a little helpful. However, they failed to mention that my third interview was with an ethics professor. Prep ethics questions! The interviews were rather informal, and I felt at ease the whole time. The questions were pretty standard, too. I didn't get any of those bat/ball questions or get grilled on my grades at all. I actually had fun." Report Response
