What are your general comments?

"The interviewers seemed very nice overall, though I think I got the most ornery one. He was cool, but didn't really go out of his way to make me feel comfortable. He also (justifiably) grilled me on my lack of clinical experience. He actually used part of my secondary essay against me. I found it strange that I wasn't asked why I want to be a doctor.
