What are your general comments?

"i was in the morning group, it was done by 2. i recommend the morning since the interviewers are first and then the tour and presentation. we had lunch at the end. there were 3 interviews. there were 2 faculty and supposed to be 1 student, but student couldn't make it, so an admissions staff member did it instead. all were closed-file. they were all nice and inviting and all asked if i had any questions for them. i had 2 biochem professors. the first guy, dr. vary, was retired. he asked about why i wanted to go into medicine, what problems there were in healthcare, what technological advances were important recently, how to solve healthcare disparities, nice guy. the other one was dr. ho, awesome guy, he teaches biochem for M1s. he asked about my hobbies, what i would do when i faced an ethical problem with a patient, what i was interested in besides biology and medicine, the last was a lady, linda singleton, she asked about why i picked uic, where is saw myself in 10 years, what would three of my closest friends say about me, they all ask if you have questions so make sure you do, and they all liked the fact that i was from uic undergrad, so if you are, make sure you mention that."
