What are your general comments?

"The parking lot was almost full so I had to park on the roof. Some people who arrived later than me had to do valet parking. I had my interview after the orientation, tour, and lunch. My interviewer was a basic scientist who was not very conversational. To top it off, he has minimal interactions with medical students so he couldn't answer questions about the medical school. He interrupted me often to ask another question. He also proceeded to tell me that my anecdote in my personal statement is stupid. Maybe that was a joke but I sure didn't appreciate it. Overall, I felt my interview was rather stressful. " Report Response
