What are your general comments?

"I think Pitt is a great place. The hospital is the only game in town, and the school keeps reinventing itself every year with all the money it receives. The only negative was my faculty interviewer was terrible. He repeatedly left in the middle of the interview, took phone calls, and proceeded to make anatagonistic comments about all of my experiences. He definitely shouldn't be interviewing medical students because he couldn't have gotten anything out of my interview except leaving me with a negative impression." Report Response
