What are your general comments?

"Pretty good day. Not as stressful as I had heard the interview at ucsd could be. I guess it depends on who you get though. One of interviewers really hammered on my research- like 30 minutes worth! So be prepared. They actually read your secondary and amcas so they are very prepared with their questions which was good. They send you by yourself to all areas of the campus (and city for that matter) for your interviews. Back to back so you really have to hustle not be be late to your second interview. I wish they would change that. Overall good stress-free day" Report Response
