What are your general comments?

"The 2 interviews were night and day. The first one was probing. She wasn't very respectful- believed that no one could really want to go into medicine to help other people. (I talked about a shadowing experience with a great doctor who made next to nothing but was making a huge difference in his community) The second interview was a conversation. She didn't ask me anything except if I liked birds. At the end of the talk she said that she hoped I came to this school and that my creditials were above what they were looking for.
