What are your general comments?

"It went very well. I was very stressed going in because this was my first interview and it was late in the year, but 2 seconds into my first interview, I completely relaxed. The interviewers were really enthusiastic and friendly. The interviews are conversational and I even had one interviewer who wished we could have talked longer because we had so much in common! My advice to anyone interviewing at UAB is to 1. know your application materials 2. if you've had research experience, be prepared to talk about it. and most importantly: 3. BE FRIENDLY. They invited you to interview, so that means you're qualified for med school. Now they just want to see that you can carry on a good conversation and are enthusiastic about becoming a doctor."
