What are your general comments?

"This was my first medical school interview so I was surprised that it was very relaxed. We had a visit with the financial aid person and an overview of the medical program. They took us on an hour-long tour of the facilities (the cadaver lab, the group study areas, the hospitals). Then I had about 2 free hours while most others had interviews. We all had lunch together. After lunch, I had two one-on-one interviews. Both were very unstructured and conversational. We pretty much talked about everything that wasn't on my application. Overall, I really enjoyed it."
