What are your general comments?

"There were no out of the ordinary questions, only about why I chose the school I chose, why medicine, etc. They both asked me repeatedly what I did in my spare time, I got the feeling they didn't feel like I did enough. (I work full time but am taking this year to have fun and do outdoor stuff before I go to med school). One interviewer hadn't read my file and started off kind of harshly, the other was completely prepared, very warm and relaxed. The day was soooo long, I was completely exhausted by the end, but it's definately my first choice now. " Report Response
