What are your general comments?

"It was really low stress, but again it depends on individual interviewers, My interviewers only talked to me about what I felt coming here and that was pretty much it. The rest of the interview they talked about going to medical school, how's technology working in medicine. Most of the interview they kept saying "what can I tell you about Rush" In the end my open file interviewer kind of freaked me out when he asked me all the places where I applied and went through each cities but then in the end said you are still young there are more ways to get there than one and you have a lot of time...I was like what the ... is he rejecting me already??? But Alhamdulillah I got in so ..." Report Response
