What are your general comments?

"The interviewer asked a series of questions off a sheet. There were a lot of questions, however, none were especially difficult. They were standard questions that I had expected. The interviewer took notes during the interview. I was never really pressed for a more in depth response and didn't feel like the interviewer wanted to challenge me. Although my interviewer had reviewed my file before hand, we discussed most of the experiences that I had listed on my AMCAS application for clarification of dates, etc. " Report Response
