What are your general comments?

"I arrived at 9:45 and basically just sat around talking with the other interviewees and a doctor's wife until 10:45. There are 6 interviewees on any given day. I thought both the presentation about the school and financial aid were very good. Lunch with M2's and tour with M1's. Interviews were only 15 min. each interviewer just has your personal statement, but they may not have read it very closely or remember it well. Two of my interviewers were very stoic/aloof at first but they warmed up by the end of the interview... I think they may do that at first to see how you respond." Report Response
