What are your general comments?

"I think my interviewer was a very nice lady, but just focused on my first semester grades too much. She would turn my answers around. I think she just wanted make sure i could handle medical school classes. It was just annoying for her to keep going back to them, i mean they were good enough to get an interview! advice: get there early because if you come late you will be there all day or come late and ask people how their interviews went...its up to you.
