What are your general comments?

"Very relaxed, my interviewer actually talked for a good 15 minutes during the interview. MAJOR TIP: the interview is in your hands. Know what you want the interviewer to know, and make sure you get it in. My guy asked me many open ended questions, like: what do you do at your school? I started listing some things, pausing thinking he might want to ask more into each thing, but he took my pause like my answer was over, and I ended up not getting in some key info about me. Also, my interviewer didn't seem too informed about my AMCAS, i've heard different about Vbilt though." Report Response
