What are your general comments?

"3 interviews, 2 doctors and 1 student. Interviews were mostly laid back, the student was very nice! Last interviewer was an old doctor who asked about my GPA and MCAT (even though it is a closed-file interview, I don't know if this was a test to see if I'd say ''but this is a closed file interview!'' or what, but both of my scores are, Thank God, good, so I told him). This man also asked a lot of health care questions to get an idea of what the current state of medicine is like. There are 2 sessions, morning and afternoon. Each consists of about 7 or 9 students. Morning sessions' interviews start immediately and the morning is split into 4 'blocks,' you have interviews in 3 of the 4 blocks and a break in a 4th (so you can have 3 interviews straight, or 1 interview, then break, then 2 interviews, etc..). After interviews you have a small presentation about UIC (at this point the afternoon session has joined you), then a tour, then lunch. Then morning session is free to go and afternoon sessions' interviews begin, not sure when they get the tour though, probably while morning sessions' interviews were going on." Report Response
