What are your general comments?

"It was terrible. The interviewers try to throw you off kilter with their "ethical" questions, whcih are not about ethics at all...they are just a tool to conduct a "stress" interview. The student who interviewed me insulted my reason for wanting to go into medicine, and he just seemed completely apathetic. The other person who interviewed me was bed...just bad.
