What are your general comments?

"Overall, the NYCOM interview experience is very laid back and relaxed. We only had one interviewer, as there was some type of faculty function going on in the afternoon. After asked a few questions, my interviewer asked, "Do you have any more questions?" It almost seemed as if he just wanted to get out of there. I'm curious to know how critical interviewer comments are in the entire admissions process." Report Response
