What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was one of the doctors in the medical school. He went to my high school and began our conversation by discussing some of the teachers there and the neighborhood...since he grew up several blocks from where I live. The conversation flowed naturally from there and I hardly realized that almost an hour had passed. After the interview, we had lunch with several medical students. Lunch was followed by a tour of the NYU and Bellevue Hospital facilities." Report Response
