What are your general comments?

"Waited in lobby waiting room for a few minutes, went to hear presentation from dean in his office about the school's faculty, facility, technology, possible teaching hospital sites, curriculum, admissions process, etc. It lasted maybe 45 minutes to an hour. Then the two other applicants that were there with me went for there interviews, one at a time (so I of course was left sweating it out by myself in the waiting area). Each interview took between 30-40 minutes. After the interview you are free to leave. The first interviewee left around 10! I was interviewed by a D.O. and a faculty member- we were all seated together at a table. I felt more comfortable at this interview than at any of my previous ones. I felt like I was having a pleasant conversation with my interviewers, not like I was been grilled with question after question. Overall, I didn't do a lot of talking, actually! They even complimented my achievements. The interview went really well- I felt silly for getting so nervous. " Report Response
