What are your general comments?

"There were two interviews, one faculty interview that was open-file, and another student interview that was closed-file. Each interview was 30 minutes. Both interviews were very conversational, but the faculty interview was very fast-paced because we only had 30 minutes for her to get all her questions in. The student interview was very relaxed. For me, it actually ended up lasting for over an hour, but it was more of a conversation than an interview. However, the student interview does address some more ''difficult'' issues, such as if you are ready for medical school, what past experiences have prepared you, and how do you think you would adjust."
