What are your general comments?

"It was a good experience. The first interviewer was a 4th year med student and we had a very comfortable and laid back conversation ranging from my experiences in medicine to him going hiking soon. It was a good warmup for the second which was with a physician who is also the head of the admissions committee. He was much more serious and seemed extremely concerned with making sure that I had a good reason to want to become a doctor. When he presents me to the committee he said he wanted to be able to tell them something good about me, so it seemed like he really cared which was reassuring. When I asked about USF not being popular around the nation (unlike Harvard, Stanford, even UF, etc) he said that it's not so important and if you put in the effort you will succeed, and I believe him. So overall a great experience at USF today!" Report Response
