What are your general comments?

"It was terrible. I had two medical students interview me at hte same time, and they were really bad. They asked me lame questions that really only needed one sentence to answer, and they just looked at me for a good 3 seconds after each question. they were dour and seemed unhappy. the last interviewers was also really unwelcoming. he asked me questions about medicine and why i wanted to be a doctor (totally expected) and criticized my answers and asked me millions of questions to fish for his answer, which he obviously thought was right. students seem stressed out, facilities and area are bad."
