What are your general comments?

"I scheduled my interviews early, because I knew I would be stressed until they were over. I was happy to be finished mid-morning, and to be able to relax for the rest of the day. The first interviewer had obviously interviewed a lot, and had lots of questions that I had to think through on the spot. He didn't ask me about my research, or my favorite books or sports. He did answer the "Who are you?" question himself when I bungled it, demonstrating that he had read and incorporated my entire application, even to asking me to define words I'd used in my secondary. The faculty interviewer asked me a little about myself, but mostly sincerely gushed about the University and medical school. I found him charming, especially because he was very very old, and he kept talking about how he loved his wife and their committment to medicine." Report Response
