What are your general comments?

"It was two PhDs dressed casually that traded off asking two questinos a piece without responce (why do you want to be a doctor, ways for improving costs of health care, how would you handle working with someone of different cultures and beliefs and explain an instance in which you displayed compassion). This was followed by open discussion, which felt very similar to the first part. they traded off again asking questions about who has been good mentour to me, how do i deal with stress and what do i fear most about medical school. It was not intimidating, but it was difficult not being in a conversational setting. " Report Response
