What are your general comments?

"Everything was really going find until may interview. I enjoyed the lunch with the students, the tour was short but i suppose there really wasn't much to see. My interviewer was not from the school of medicine, but from the school of social welfare and proceeded to tell me that the med students were "the more equal pigs" and got free printing when none of the other school's students did. She seemed kind of bitter about this fact. She asked me a lot of questions that didn't really get at who I am as a candidate either including if financial situations were going to be an issue in paying for medical school." Report Response
