What are your general comments?

"My first interview started an hour and a half late because his daughter had surgery that morning. I felt he was a reasonable person and asked fair and pointed questions concerning my application. However, I feel that his method of reviewing my application to be quite deficient. Is it really possible to get a good overview of an applicant when you read his/her application on the elevator to your office? It felt rushed and impersonal. My interviewer did not make eye-contact with me until 15 minutes had passed. My second interviewer whom I will leave unnamed for his own personal dignity was personable yet arrogant at the same time. He never personally attacked me but asked me what he was supposed to say to the admissions commitee for someone with a 3.47 GPA when I was competing against people with a 3.8. He also tried to make me feel that it was a mistake to have included in my personal statement that my parents deaths while I was in middle school was basically a "sob story," and making someone feel sorry for me was not the way to get into medical school. I would still choose UNC just because of the price, but it seems to me a moral dilemma because I would not want to be associated with such an arrogant group of physicians. This was the only interview that I left feeling like a smaller person because of who I was. The only reason to go to UNC would be the great price. Would you want to be surrounded by such pompous sour attitudes for four years? " Report Response
