What are your general comments?

"I got to campus 15 minutes early, but ended up being late to my interviews because I thought the office of admissions for the SOM was in a different building. Ms. Edwards gave me my packet and sent me on my way to Shryock. My first interviewer was very nice. He teaches anatomy and just wanted to know who I am and where I'm coming from. My second interview was upcampus and I was a little late to this one as well, but it was very short and brisk (I guess that's the best word for it). Both faculty members know the man I work for and so they didn't really expect me to have any questions about the school or religious aspects of it, but I had a really good discussion about Christianity with my first interviewer, which was an unusual experience for a medical school interview. I went back to the medical admissions office after my interviews, hoping to meet some other interviewees, but it wasn't an interview day (which I was unaware of), so I just went to work."
