What are your general comments?

"First interview but I am definitely glad I had it here. SD is a very relaxed atmosphere. You see this in the environments, the students, the faculty, and the admissions staff. UCSD goes out of their way to ensure their students' and even their potential students' well-being. Definitely get to know a first year more by finding a student host. On interview day, they just want to know who you are as a person so you really don't have to prepare. All questions were standard so if you can't answer ''Why Medicine?'' that's not a good sign for both the interviewer and for yourself (why go into a career if you don't even know why?). Good luck!"
