What are your general comments?

"Started off with a presentation about the school which was nice and informative. There were a LOT of interviewees (about 12, almost all of which were dudes...WHACK). Then I had to take a bus to my interviewer's office at some hospital downtown. The guy was a complete prick and wouldn't allow for a normal conversation. He proceeded to grill me for the entire duration of time there. His name was Dr. Chawla and he really left a bad taste in my mouth as far as Drexel goes. Then I took a bus back to the medical center where we ate lunch with current students (who are basically in it for the free lunch and don't really give a shit about you)" Report Response
