What are your general comments?

"It was weird. Probably one of the weirdest ones I had. The first interviewer gave me an old-fashioned hazing, which are not supposed to exist anymore. For example...he said he was not in his best spirits that day (great, thanks!); when I said maybe it was the weather (it was snowing) he said "why don't you wait until you're a doctor before you tell me what's wrong with me". Great, thanks. Interestingly, we broke the ice later on and joked a lot and he said he liked me. The second interviewer was like talking to a piece of cement. Just stared at you. Strange."
