What are your general comments?

"I walked in and my interviewer (who happens to teach biochem at the undergrad school there) was very disappointed that I didn't take biochemistry in college. He sees it as a prerequisite. We walk into his office and he has not read or even looked at my essays and file because I guess he must have been busy. It was an open file interview but he must think he's too important to prepare for every interview. He didn't know what school I went to, what my goals were, what my background was. He didn't ask me any questions other than "why do you want to be a doctor?" and "Your major was biology huh?" (it was actually biology and history but he was too busy to hear my answer). All in all I don't know what he had against me but he never smiled and he was not at all friendly, unlike what I had heard about him previously. He seemed very rushed, bored, and 10 minutes into the interview he said 'that should wrap it up' and went downstairs and asked for a sandwich. I thought he was despicable." Report Response
