What are your general comments?

"Not very interesting or enticing, the interview was not difficult at all, interviewer knew nothing about me, I don't favor closed file interviews, you seem to just sit there telling them stuff that they should atleast already know. They don't show interest in the diversity issue in their med class. I asked my interviewer about the demographics of the school and why she thought it was as it is, she said because it is an expensive school and minorities might not be able to afford it. Figures that I recieved a letter inviting me to come and have a visit at their minority affairs office on the day of my interview, in the mail when I got home after my interview-imbeciles " Report Response
