What are your general comments?

"The interview was definitely more of a stress interview. It was difficult to establish rapport with the interviewer because for the most part, the interviewer was lookiking through my AMCAS application to ask questions.

But for the most part, there was a lack of flow between the interviewer and me." Report Response
