What are your general comments?

"The first interview was more serious, but more general questions. He got really specific with the health care system, gene therapy, and kept testing how much i knew about SIU. I liked the fact that he asked about how i studied for the MCATS and he really tried to find out about how i work as a student. The second interview was very laid back and informal and he basically worked off of my application." Report Response
