What are your general comments?

"My interviewer did not seem interested in what I was saying. Not once was I asked to elaborate on anything I said. I had given her a copy of my AMCAS essay (as requested) after meeting her and she said she would read it later. I think that she would have gotten to know me better by reading it first, allowing me more time to elaborate on things she had read. I was not asked about current issues in health care, a topic I think is essential for a med school interview. I would have liked to have two interviews, because I don't like the idea of this interviewer presenting me to the committee. " Report Response
