What are your general comments?

"Upon arriving at the med school the group of interviewees sat in a common area and had a welcome/intro from the dean. This was followed by a tour by 3 med students around the building. Interviews were done in 3 separate rooms and were conducted infront of a panel of 3 interviewers. I was the 3rd up in my designated room, so I had some down time before it was my turn. I was only interviewed by a MD and 3rd year student - the other MD could not make it. The actual interview was very conversational and laid-back. There were mostly the typical ''why medicine, etc.'' questions. Hardly any relating to my personal experiences from my essays which I was surprised about. " Report Response
