What are your general comments?

"This was my first medical school interview. Linda Prado, the lady who contacts interviewees, was very sweet. Everyone emphasized that they just wanted to get to know the students. My first interview, by Dr. Lampe, was very relaxed. He made notes from my application and was reassuring throughout the interview. My second interview, by Dr. Felton, was also amiable. She had a tendency to look a little displeased while I was answering her question, but would break out into a wide smile toward the end of each response. " Report Response
