What are your general comments?

"My experience was very positive. I arrived early for my 9:30 AM appointment and discovered that it had been pushed back an hour because my interviewer had to schedule a patient in at the last moment. My newly assigned interviewer was a surgeon at Jacobi and instead of taking a shuttle across the Bronx, I was able to walk up the street 10 minutes to get to my interview. My interviewer was very enthusiastic about the school and the willingness of the faculty or administration to help students achieve their goals in becoming an MD repeatedly came up. We discussed music, foreign languages, committment to patient care, and optimism regarding healthcare reform and having a family alongside a career in surgery. I had to remind myself continually that this was an interview and not a conversation I was having with a mentor. Needless to say, the interview made a superb impression on an already convinced candidate. I left my interview and the campus enamored with the Bronx and AECOM... He did allow me to ask quite a few questions I had prepared ahead of time and although he couldn't answer some of them regarding recent academic changes or the MD/MS in clinical research program, his responses were very helpful.
