What are your general comments?

"The interview was great. However! Unlike all the comments I've read regarding the interview and such easy questions asked...I unfortunately had very difficult questions (case scenarios!) and a very long interview! Nonetheless, I was able to go through it and my interviewer was open-minded to my thoughts, as if he wanted to know more about my experiences and opinions. Go in there answering with your own thoughts, don't have preconceptions of someone eles'e thoughts or a memorized list of answers. Be yourself, be honest, be relaxed, and you'll do perfectly fine. All in all, being my very first medical school interview, I had a great experience and feel like I can take on more medical school interviews~" Report Response
