What are your general comments?

"My interviews were like night and day. The first interviewer was INTENSE. He questioned nearly all of my ecs with something like: Why did you do that? Why not this... In the end he pretty much told me that I was not ready to be a doctor... Second and third interviews were very laid back. After the interview process I have no idea where I stand. I am not sure if I even got recommended by the first interviewer at all. If I don't get in I'll be a little dissapointed considering that I had almost the maximum number of points in the pre-interview screen." Report Response
