What are your general comments?

"it was terrific! i decided to add my interview experience after viewing all of the negative ratings on this site. i can't be sure, but i'm going to hazard a guess that those who are complaining wouldn't make it or have much of an impact in medicine. life isn't perfect; there will be adversity, and those who will succeed and survive are those who face the adversity with grace and tenacity. you might expect me to say that i hope the complainers won't be in my class, but i hope they are because maybe those of us who look at life as ''half full'' can help those who dwell on the ''half empty.''
