What are your general comments?

"Awesome. I interviewed first with a pediatrician and then a PHD. They both went through my AMCAS file and asked questions about it. I didn't have any hostile questions or ''what do you do if...'' scenerios. The interviewers wanted to get to know me beyond grades and test scores. In my second interview we talked about everything from sushi, traveling to Rome, Irish ancestory, Memphis, banning smoking in bars, and red wine. It was like chatting with one of my parent's friends. So relaxing." Report Response
