What are your general comments?

"my interview was brutal. it lasted about an hour and 15 minutes. i told my interviewer i was considering a part-time job while in school. he said that would be difficult if not impossible, and he proceeded to discourage me from becoming a dentist. at that point i realized i screwed up and just tried to be honest, to convince him why i want to be a dentist and tried be myself and it payed off. i gave myself about a 1% chance of getting in, and i received a letter of acceptance a week later through express mail.the questions are straight forward, however, you can't be vague with your answers with the interwer i had. most likely you'll get someone who'll be easier."
