What are your general comments?

"Interviewers: One faculty member, one clinician, one 3rd or 4th year student. In my interview, the student did most of the talking and asked all the questions. I was asked the behavioral questions, then more personal ones. There's no conversation between you and the interviewers during the behavioral portion; they just let you talk and move to the next question when you finish. After the behavioral portion, the interviewers relaxed a little and made comments to some things I said. " Report Response
