What are your general comments?

"It seemed the 3 interviwers may have had different tasks... One interviewer barely touched on any medical school questions, in fact, it just seemed as if he was assessing behavioral aspects to a semi-stressful situation. It was a little odd, but relevant. None of the interviews were confrontational, but some of the interviewers may "dig" a bit for answers." Report Response
