What are your general comments?

"I believe Kentucky's school of medicine would offer any student the opportunity to receive a quality education; their facilities are adequate, they have reputable faculty, and their curriculum is well-designed. Moreover, the people in Kentucky were for the most part very polite. Unfortunately, I had the misfortune of being asked a number of illegal questions by a noticeably inexperienced interviewer; I believe their admissions process needs to be seriously scrutinized and reformed.
