What are your general comments?

"This is the first interviewer I had who seemed uninterested in interviewing. It is disappointing when your interviewer doesn't seem like he cares about being part of the admissions process. He was busy with patients and feeling under the weather, and was basically saying that the school wanted him to ask certain questions even though he feels that they have already been answered in the application. He was not engaging or conversational." Report Response
