What are your general comments?

"This was a great experience. It was my third interview and I felt really comfortable with the experience. My interviewer was an older man who was a physician overseas in the Vietnam War so he had many stories. The interview was very conversational. I had to find the place to my interviewer by myself but upon leaving, he actually walked back with me and we talked the entire way back to the admissions office. Overall a great experience with not too many controversial questions. Good Luck!" Report Response
