What are your general comments?

"The interview was definitely tough. The interviewer really controlled it and didn't let me go off too much. It was a little scripted in that he had a packet in front of him. In the first part he asked questions and wrote answers. in the second part, he turned the paper over to the blank side, and asked hypothetical/ethical/situational questions. In the third part, he turned the paper back over and asked me about why i wanted to attend UC. it was somewhat but not totally relaxed; the interviewer was definitely a friendly guy. they really nit pick details in your application, so be prepared for that. such as, "why were your sophomore year grades not as good" or "how did you study for your mcat" or "are you satisfied with each part of your mcat, even your verbal which is a couple points lower than the others?" and the situational questions are definitely tough. he kept saying, there is no right or wrong, i'm just trying to pick your brain."
