What are your general comments?

"The entire experience was really positive. My interviewer had my AMCAS and UVM applications, along with a list of questions he could choose from. The interview itself was pretty conversational, he would ask questions from his list and put them in the context of my experiences, eg. So how did experience X help you to decide the MD route? At the end of the interview he asked if I had any questions, then talked about the fact that despite being in rural Vermont, you'll still get good exposure to a broad base of patients. During the interview it felt like the interviewer was really just trying to get to know and befriend me rather than a grill and drill session. Overall, quite a good experience. " Report Response
