What are your general comments?

"It was a positive one. I got to the admissions office close to noon, had a tour, ate lunch with med students, and had my first interview with a faculty member. then, i had a student interview. my student interviewer and i got along VERY well. he was genuinely interested in knowing me, and i wish he wasn't an M4, because I would love to have a classmate like him. he asked questions to learn about ME and not silly questions that could easily be gleaned from my AMCAS. Both interviewers were relaxed, but they did ask some hard questions. My student interviewer told me that he turned down a full scholarship to another in-state private school to attend UCLA.
