What are your general comments?

"We started the day with a brief orientation, followed by lunch and a tour by two M2's. Following the tour, we were called out one by one for our interviews. My first interview seemed really bored and talked about the school for more than half of the interview. I didn't feel like he listened to me very well. My second interviewer was really nice. She spent the entire time asking me ethical questions and scenarios. After my interview day, I decided that I definitely did not want to go to Albany." Report Response
