What are your general comments?

"My first interview was awful--I interviewed with an MD who acted like she was completely unimpressed with my file (closed). She interviewer kept grilling me and then telling me that my opinions regarding medicine were wrong! My second interview was completely different, however. It was great because the interviewer asked very engaging questions and agreed with everything I said. Possibly a case of good cop/bad cop? I was really worried when I left, but then received a notice of acceptance 2 weeks later! Also, at Loyola, they have an awesome system where if you think that you had a bad interview, you can ask the Dean for a 3rd opportunity when you meet with him/her at the end of the day.
