What are your general comments?

"The day started with an orientation about the school and about the actual interview process. They tell you beforehand how the interview is structured and how the interviewers are supposed to react (or rather not react) to your answers. The interview itself also starts with both interviewers repeating the same instructions. They ask 4 standard questions and they are not supposed to react, and then any questions or discussions after that would be anything under the sun. We stayed in one room (only 10 or 11 of us) while we waited for all the interviews to get done. Then lunch was served, and the day was conluded by a tour with one of the medical students."
