What are your general comments?

"Both interviews went pretty well. My first interviewer kept complimenting my record, which was actually difficult for me. He would say, "well, you've got good grades and a good MCAT," and I had a tough time deciding whether he wanted me to thank him, add to his list of good features about me, or be humble and suggest he was praising me too much. He was a businessman along with an MD, which is a field that interests me as well; I was slightly unaccostomed to the informality of it. The second interview went flawlessly; I was relaxed, warmed up, and able to answer the "interesting question" I've listed here cleverly since I was relaxed. We got along really well too. Normally I thought I would've been in because of it, but the first interview was slightly rocky and there are SO few positions available. " Report Response
