What are your general comments?

"Some of the questions made me wonder whether there are unofficial criteria for admissions. I was asked about my family's financial stability (which to me meant whether I be paying for medical school up front in cash or through loans). I had no indication that my interview was open-file and my interviewer clearly did not read it prior to or during the interview. If you want to mention something you may have to take the initiative. Many of the questions are standard, I feel like my interviewer went on very few tangents. I was asked what my research was about and my interviewer was satisfied with just the title. No followup questions in that regard." Report Response
