What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was really pleasant and easy going. The secretary walked me from the admissions office, down the street a few blocks, to my interviewing doctor's personal office (which I didn't expect to happen. I thought the interview would take place in the admissions office somewhere). When I got there, he hadn't read my file yet, so he took a few minutes to read it while I sat there. It was a little bit awkward at first, but then he relaxed in his chair and just started talking to me. It was very conversational-- we talked about anything from taste receptors and pheromones to ways in which we would perfect health care for the world. It was a very enjoyable conversation and he allowed me to feel very comfortable. " Report Response
