What are your general comments?

"Both faculty interviewers have access to all application materials, but one of my interviewers chose not to read anything beforehand while another seemed very familiar with my file. As a result, the first interviewer asked general questions and offered little feedback. My second interview was fantastic. I don't know if the school specifically picked my interviewer, but the doctor and I had lots of interests in common so we had a great conversation. I wish we could have chatted for more than 30 minutes." Report Response
