What are your general comments?

"I'm not sure my interviewer read my file. He knew a few things about me (GPA, MCAT, schools attended) but not much else. This let me dictate the conversation. At the same time, he hada few false impressions based on those few things he looked at. Was a bit aggressive about my financial status and assumed my parents were paying for everything (which is not the case and a bit offensive). We ended up coming to terms talking about public health (something I am passionate about) and I think the interview ended very positively. " Report Response
