What are your general comments?

"Started off the day by bringing in a standardized patient. They didn't really try to sell the school to you, emphasized a lot on student life. I had a gruff looking doc who I later found out was a flight surgeon. I was pretty nervous for the first few minutes, but after I made the doc chuckle a little, I knew I was golden. Student interviewer was a quiet girl who didn't know my friend and so took away my trump card. All in all, I came out happier than I went in." Report Response
