What are your general comments?

"Arrived at 10:30 (for all of you who don't go to UNC, understand that parking is nearly impossible and MacNider building is hard to find = go very early!), at 11 brief talk on financial aid, 2 very nice second years ate lunch with us (catering from Panera), then showed us around. First interview at 1:15, took place in the coffee shop-for me it was relaxing to be around other people. Interview was about 45 minutes, the doctor was very stoic and hard to read...thought i did ok though. Hung out in the waiting area for a while...med students were constantly stopping in to say hi and introduce themselves...i was very impressed. Second interview at 2:45, went into a big conference room, doctor was extremely personable and nice. Important note: Only one of your interviewers is on the admissions committee, I don't really know what the other doc's purpose is...just do a great job on both interviews and you don't have to worry about it! The first doc that interviewed me asked a lot of the questions found on SDN. The second doctor (who was on the committee) was more interested in just chatting for the most part. " Report Response
