What are your general comments?

"The first one was kind of bad...I had to wait an hour to actually talk to the guy. It was a doctor and professor of nuclear medicine, and he was nice, but I think I was just really nervous (it was my first interview) and didn't convey my thoughts as well as I could have. He also asked me some tough ethical questions. The second interview, on the other hand, was really great! It was a professor who was really just interested in getting to know me better."
