What are your general comments?

"I would not say that my responses to their questions were horrible or that I was particularly nervous but the reason I felt the interview was negative was becuase I got no facial response to my answers except for a few nods here and there. This made me feel uncomfortable/nervous despite the director of admissions and the tour guides telling us all to relax and not stress about the interviews. What was reassuring was that after my interview, when I went to lunch, my student interview came up to us and invited us to sit with him and ask more questions. I thought that was really great and I dwas able to learn more about medical school/residency placement. The tour guides were super nice and funny and thought that was the most enjoyable aspect of the interview day. I also thought the admissions staff was fantastic. They were friendly and welcoming.
