What are your general comments?

"Well, it was one interview that was supposed to be scheduled for 25 minutes, which is really really shory. i had two MDs and a MIV interviewing me, all at the same time. One MD looked like she did not want to be there at all, and even asked me what undergrad institution i was from; clearly she had not read anything from my application. The other MD was a bit more prepared, but it was the student that asked most of the questions. They all seemed fairly stone-faced and not very welcoming. Don't know if they meant to be that way. The interviewee before me said she experienced everything that I just said above, so it wasn't just my interview. " Report Response
