What are your general comments?

"recommended hotel was easy to find and very close to the school. i was nervous simply because this was my first med school interview but there were no tricky questions. everything was straightforward and the tour was given by volunteer med students. it was nice to know when the admissions committee meets and we were told when to expect to hear an answer. however, when i walked into the interview room, it seemed that one of the interviewers was reading my personal statement at that moment so i'm not sure if they had looked over any of my application before the actual interview. tip - assume they haven't so you want to make sure you say what you want them to know about you before the interview is over.
