What are your general comments?

"I think I gained a false sense of security from my faculty interview (she looked like a young, sweet physician); but she was SUPER difficult to crack a smile or laugh. She gave me that question about the daughter and every answer that I had, she responded with a quick rebuttal, almost cutting me off. All in all, the interview must have gone well (because I just got my acceptance!!!), but she was a bit tough. The student interviewer was way laid back and supportive." Report Response
