What are your general comments?

"There were about 20 people interviewed on that day including me. We all had different scheduling times and to some extent different items. I had my one-on-one interview with Dr. Wallace. He was very nice and funny. I guess he was impressed when I told him I was so early for the interview because it meant I was serious about what I wanted. Also I had made a list of questions to ask him which also impressed him(I came prepared). After that was the preparation for the group discussion and the essay writing. I guess the topic for the essay was hard. We were asked to write only in pens. I saw one of the applicants really attacking his paper, scribbling and scratching out. His paper was really a mess. I guess that gave me confidence that I was not alone in thinking the topic was hard and I actually did a decent job(my paper was very neat). The group discussion was very interesting. We(6 applicants) were all laughing and making decisions. For a moment I forgot it was an interview and I was discussing with friends. We all felt at ease with each other. The scenario was: Six of us went on a camping expedition and one of us was attacked by a bear and left unconscious. We had to decide on the fastest way to get him medical attention given a list of items which we took on our trail. We had to prioritize the items in order of importance and choose the best strategy."
