What are your general comments?

"The interviews were more of a conversation. There is one with a faculty member and one with a student. They make you feel very comfortable, so it isn't too stressful. They have three questions they are required to ask you and then they just focused on specific activities that I have done and am doing now. It seemed that they really want to give you every opportunity to do your best at the interview and to really get to know you beyond your GPA and MCAT scores (which interviewers do not have access to).
