What are your general comments?

"Arrived 1 hour early. Struck up a conversation with a student studying in the meeting room. She immediately offered to answer any questions I had and reassured me that the interview would be laid back. We had a 15 min slide show about UNE, then we waited for our individual interviews in the cafe. Most were 1 on 1 that day. My interview was with a Ph.D. He was friendly--starting off with how we had similar childhoods growing up near salt water and having to be near the ocean. We had overlapping research interests, so he had me explain what I've been up to. He then mentioned his interests, but quickly focused back on me, asking me the usual: Why Osteopathic medicine, why UNECOM, what branch of medicine will you pursue. The interview lasted about 20 min, though we were scheduled for 30min--I really emphasized that UNE was my top choice. He said I had a good interview, so I'm hopeful. After my interview I waited for some others to finish, then MS I's took us on a tour of campus. They were helpful and honest about the school. I love this place and hope to attend there."
