What are your general comments?

"i got to ucla pretty early, about an hour before check-in time, which was nice because it gave me some time to explore the hospital and walk out my nerves. i had two interviews scheduled, the first one with a student and the second one with a doctor. not everyone had the same setup for interviews, so i have no idea if it's a positive thing that i have two people arguing for me in the committee, or a bad thing if they thought i needed the help. at any rate, the student was very nice, and we had our informal interview over lunch. i didn't eat too much because i talked most of the time, but that was fine since i wasn't that hungry anyway. the second interview was with a doctor who had little to no knowledge of my application, but was very nice and interested in finding out who i was as a potential doctor. my day ended at 2:30 p.m. after starting at 11:45 a.m. and i went home.
