What are your general comments?

"My interviewer kept me waiting for over 45 minutes before he called me into his office. Then, after I finally went in, he spent 5 minutes frowning and grunting at my file. Finally, he started asking me questions. When he asked me why I wanted to be a doctor and I explained, he continued frowning at me and told me he didn't understand why I wanted to be a doctor and that I wasn't making a case for my career choice. he talked about a bad chemistry grade--which i explained that i received while working 2 jobs and playing on my school basketball team--and he told me that i would probably have difficulty cutting it in med school. Then he asked me why I wanted to be a doctor again. Overall, the interviewer attacked every answer or career interest that I had. The entire experience was more stress than was necessary. The only good thing is Einstein gives money for research and other interests is students want to take a fifth year." Report Response
