What are your general comments?

"Good experience - everyone did the best they could to accomodate me even though there was a scheduling error (they were double booked). There were no real "questions," just "Why do you want to be a doctor" and just kind of a flowing conversation from there. We talked about me, we talked about the interviewer, we just talked like two normal people would talk. I was reminded that this is not an oral exam, just an...informational conversation."
