What are your general comments?

"I arrived early and waited in a waiting room with a couple of other interviewees. We all chatted comfortably and then were drawn out one by one. My interviewer was really nice and she put me at ease immediately. She did include some expected interviewing questions, but on the whole it was very conversational and enjoyable. After I went back to the waiting room and those of us who had finished interviewing went to lunch at the cafeteria with one of the faculty, who answered our questions and led us into an interesting discussion on compassion. Then we had a tour by two medical students who were very enthusiastic about their school (or the fact that finals had just finished earlier that day). " Report Response
