What are your general comments?

"I have already been accepted somewhere else, but I decided to go on this interview because of it's location in New York City (the med school I got into is kinda of rural). I wasn't expecting much from the school, I just tried to see if I could see myself being happy at the school, which, I don't think I would be, even though it's only a subway ride from Manhattan. Also, I am interested in urban medicine and would someday like to practice medicine in an enviromnent where Downstate is located. But I think I want to get the best training possible first, and I have a feeling I wouldn't get that at Downstate. I had an interview with a physician who was very nice. She basically went through my application with me, asking me to clarify certain things, specically Grades (I have several W's). Since I have taken time off since college she asked me a lot about my job and things i have done outside of the medical field. Pretty straight forward, mostly just clarifying things in my application. " Report Response
