What are your general comments?

"NYCOM is a great school in a great location. You have access to some of the best hospitals in NYC in which to do your rotations. However, NYCOM is a very impersonal school. From the moment I walked in the door, I was already sweating. I didn't get a very welcoming feeling. The secretary was very dull and only talked collecting our secondary applications and fees. My interviewer was very impersonal. All she talked about was the MCAT. She was very obsessed with it. Granted I got a 25 10(V) 9(B) 6(P) R(W), all she talked about was my physical sciences.
