What are your general comments?

"First interview was with a student, basically typical questions (why gwu, what are your strengths, weaknesses, blah blah). She seemed nice and a little nervous. Second interview, with faculty, lasted much longer than the 25 min it was supposed to, more of a conversation than an interview, talked about my undergrad research (history, not medical), future of medicine, student debt, a very meandering friendly conversation."
