What are your general comments?

"In general, the interview was great. I interviewed with the professor first and then with the medical student. The professor interview was a bit stressful and he really challenged me. He liked to dig deep into every single aspect of any answer I gave. But overall, he was a nice guy and I enjoyed meeting him. The interview with the medical student was fantastic. The med student was extremely nice and asked some great questions that were testing my thinking abilities but were still not too difficult. The interview with the medical student was awesome and I really enjoyed meeting such a wonderful individual." Report Response
