What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was amazing, made me forget that I was begging for the next four years. lasted 2 hours 45 minutes, talked about pretty much everything except tough questions. she knew my amcas well, but as long as you're honest it will not be a sweat AT ALL. Some other people didn't have as good a time. one person got asked immediately if he had any questions, whatever he said the interviewer immediately told him he should have asked about the strengths and weaknesses of vandy's program...but most people said it was chill. I really got the impression she just wanted to get to know me, and was not grading or judging anything I said. she gave a lot of advice on choosing a med school also. I stayed with a student both nights, definitely recommend it, you get a much better sense of the school. played IM soccer with a bunch of the students my first night, went out to dinner with a group of 10 the second night."
