What are your general comments?

"I enjoyed it. This was my first interview, so I was nervous, but it was a very casual and relaxed day. This website was both good and bad to prepare with. Good because the questions were really identical. EVERY question I was asked I saw on sdn feedbacks (how did u prep for mcats, how do u relieve stress, why medicine, why did u attend your college, why downstate, why can you handle brooklyn). BUT this site also scared me, b/c a lot of the feedbacks are too negative. My interviewer was a great guy, and did not grill me or try to trip me up at all. " Report Response
