What are your general comments?

"This interview was unique for several reasons. It was my longest interview (90min). It was the only interview where I was asked any ethics or health policy questions. About 75% of the interview was ethics and health policy questions. The AdCom seems really nit-picky. This was the only school that asked me why I got a C in my class (only C I ever got)."
