What are your general comments?

"The conference room setting was very conducive for interactions which relieved some tention before the interview. The orientation about the school and getting feedback from medical students calmed my nerves as well. The interview part was not at all what I expected. Although the two faculty members conducting the intervew did not give me feedback during the structured part of the interview, they were not inhuman, they managed to ease the tension in the room favorable for answering the five questions they alternated in asking. I only managed to ask two questions and answer one of their questions for the informal (second)part of the interview, before someone knocked on the door to indicate that time was up.
