What are your general comments?

"All in all things went very smooth. My interviewers were very nice and asked questions that seemed pertinent. I had an interview with an MD, PhD, and so I was scared that he was going to grill me only on my research experience. We spent the first thirty minutes talking about my extracurriculars. Everyone was very nice, including the second years who took us to lunch. Apparently you need both interviewers to say yes, if one says no than you get a tie-breaking third interview. The school was very fair and unbiased throughout the process, but we'll see if I still feel the same come April." Report Response
