"One interviewer seemed suprised by some of the things in my application. I couldn't really tell what he was thinking. Then he would tell some lame jokes and I would laugh. The other interviewer just kind of summarized my application for me, asked a few questions to get to know me better, and talked most of the time about his ideas about med school admissions. He made me feel really comfortable and acted like he was impressed by me." Report Response
