What are your general comments?

"I got there around 11 AM and had lunch with fellow interviewees and some med students, who were extremely friendly and talkative. They told us all about their experience with the school and what they liked about it. Then I met with 2 different interviewers for about 45 minutes each. They basically pulled out my file and asked me about everything in it. Then they asked me some general questions like "what should I tell the committee about you?" It was very informal and made me feel like they were just trying to get to know my personality." Report Response
