What are your general comments?

"I was given an interview time about a week before the actual interview. On the day of, I went to the medical school and was directed to the cafe and sat with other applicants and some 2nd years while we waited for our interviews. The interviewers were two men, sitting at a table while I was on a chair in the middle of the room. Overall very standard, expected questions, though they were very interested in my family history, which I didn't expect really. The interviewers took on a good cop/bad cop style of interviewing, which made me circumspect at the time. The interview went by very quickly, it all seems like a blur now. " Report Response
