What are your general comments?

"Didn't start out great cuz I live in amarillo, and I decided to drive there on the morning of instead of night before, and alarm didn't go off. Still made it on time though. There were multiculture office reps to greet us with donuts and juice etc. Linda Prado then gave us a short tour of the building and orientation followed. The dean and another person who was supposed to speak were unable to be there ( a lil disorganized there, I thought) but someone filled in. long presentation, but I liked it. Lunch isn't suited to vegetarians, just a precaution in case you are one. My first interview was an ob/gyn who said she had been too busy to read my ap,so I had to sort of start from scratch. She was also 10 mins late cuz of her surgery that she was doing, but it was alright. She was really nice. DeRiese was her namo. She asked me about CHIP, and I was unfamiliar with any lately updated stuff on it, which I thought was the only negative thing to my interviews. She conversed with me, wished me good luck at the end. Second interviewers, Blanton, was awesome! He started the interview with '' I love your essay'' and basically proceeded to tell me what the admission committee looks for and how I meet it. We talked about a lot of things, not all of them medically related. It was great! Very nice guy. He ended the interview with ''I'll see you on campus next fall'' I hope so!! This was my first interview and for a first one, this is probably as easy as it can get. Good luck to all of you!" Report Response
