What are your general comments?

"My first interviewer was very casual and friendly. He asked typical but not too difficult questions. He seemed to talk a lot, though. It made it harder to say everything I wanted to say, but he did tell me interesting and useful information about Stony Brook and the work he was doing. The second interviewer was a second-year medical student. She just went straight through my AMCAS application and asked questions based on that information. It was good in that I had the chance to state information about myself that I didn't get to say in the first interview. There were no ethical or medical current-events questions." Report Response
