What are your general comments?

"The interviewer kept asking me why podiatry over and over again. Each time I answered him he kept saying: "But it seems you would be better fit for Osteopathic or Allopathic medicine based on your personal statement and application." It also turned into more of an interview of him rather than me. By the end he was telling me what makes Temple so good and not really much was asked about me. It also seemed like the interviewer had not really read my application very much." Report Response
