What are your general comments?

"The interviews were easy. Almost too easy. They kept stressing that they conduct laid back interviews, but this was borderline rediculous. I've always been told that the interview process was designed to distinguish among applicants that look the same on paper (good grades, MCAT, ECs, etc.)but I really have to wonder how this interview facilitated that. I mean, my 12 year old sister probably could have answered the questions I was asked - it wasn't even remotely challenging. What I thought was most distressing was that state of the students. They seemed miserablely stressed and unhappy (even more so than medical students are typically are). Even my student interviewer (who I had assumed would be full of nothing but praise for the school) said that the demands put on students were a bit much - more so than other schools - at times they are juggling something like nine classes concurrently (including a statistics class??)."
