What are your general comments?

"They tell you in the beginning that they try to make this the most relaxing process as possible. I came in 30 minutes early, and hung out in the conference room. Deans will give you a presentation, and explain their ''vision'' of the school. Interviews are in a panel, closed-file. My interview was pretty long, probably cause i talked a lot. Questions were typical, and they keep you on your toes with questions that are improved from your answers, be prepared to handle them stopping you mid sentence. Be yourself, and if you believe this is for you, state it, logically and systematically. Tell them what is important in your life, now and in the future. They are looking for students who are serious, dedicated, and personable, as medicine is not for the weak of heart. " Report Response
