What are your general comments?

"The interview was scheduled for 10:00am, but I got interviewed shortly after 4:00pm. There was the financial aid information not to mention the shock of having to buy a lap top for $2,500 through the school this was later followed by a brief overview about the curriculum by the Dean of admissions leading to lunch. Afterwards we had a tour of the school and a very impressive library. By 2:00pm only one person had been interviewed. The next person to be interviewed was after 3:00pm at this time I was taking my second dose tylenol for my headache. There was a medical student representing each year (1,2,3, and4), they kept us occupied for the most part of the three or so hours we had to wait before we got interviewed. My interview took place in the main hospital and it did not last long, but it was very encouraging, the interviewer just wanted to know what kind of a physician I would become.
