What are your general comments?

"this was my first interview, but it was pretty early (this was only the 2nd day of interviews for them). there were 12 people interviewing, 4 groups of 3 at a time. it was nice that they had the interview in the morning so you could get it over with and relax for the rest of the day. i stayed with a student the night before which i highly recommend because i got to talk and go out to dinner with other med students and get an impression of how they really like it. everyone raved about the school, but i had a feeling it wasn't representative because they've only been there one month. we were supposed to have 2 faculty and one med student interviewers, but the med student didn't show up. i was glad i got to talk to the other interviewees beforehand because once we got into the room i felt pretty comfortable with them. it was really relaxed and i didn't feel like i was competing with them at all. the interviewers though had very different personalities so the conversation didn't flow very well. the other groups said they were asked more personality questions, but we mostly talked about current issues in health care. part of it was because one guy was an economics major and they wanted his perspective on issues, and then the other two of us were asked to comment on his opinions. overall, a very low-stress interview and a chill day."
