"This was a great interview experience that lasted about 4 hours total. I was interviewed by one science faculty and one 2nd year med student also on the admissions committee, both had a calming effect and asked good questions. After the 2 interviews there is a social session with the rest of the committee which was also nice and gives you the chance to introduce yourself to many different members before they go make their decision.
