What are your general comments?

"My first interview was with a 3rd year med student and it went very well. The interview was conversational, friendly, and stress-free. I didn't get any ethical questions; most of the questions dealt with my personality or background. My second interview was conducted by the director of pediatric oncology at Baylor--an MD/PhD from Harvard. He asked me to trace the process of elimination (in detail) that led me to pursue a career in medicine, a process that spanned nearly 7 years. That question really sucked. After I answered the question, he told me that I still hadn't explained why I wanted to become a doctor. So I opted for a different approach. Not much luck that time either. So much for Baylor! I hope that I gain admission, but I'm not that optimistic in light of the second interview. Wonderful school, though. My first choice, without a doubt." Report Response
