What are your general comments?

"The questions weren't too pressing or unexpected. It seemed that they genuinely wanted to know more about me than was in my application. The student was honest with me; he gave me his opinions on both the good and the bad things about the school. I would up interview with a PA instead of a doctor. I had to meet with her in the middle of the hospital, far away from where all the other students interviewed. Her questions seemed mostly formulaic as she asked my question primarily off of a sheet of paper. Her primary concern seemed to be that I understood the responsibilities and problems that physicians face. " Report Response
