What are your general comments?

"i got there over an hour early b/c i was afraid of hitting traffic. i sat in my car and tried to talk through some answers in my head. then i went inside and met the other students. they put us in a big room, with snacks, and then interviewers came in and took some people. i was brought downstairs to another office, and chatted with my interviewer on the way down. as soon as i sat down, he asks why i want to be a dr, then why DO, then why nycom. i kept my answers pretty brief, i was nervous. then he asked about what i like to do for fun, and we started talking about the outdoors and the campus. he never once mentioned grades or scores or asked about my research. he just glanced at the secondary i had just handed in. at the end i had the opportunity to ask him some questions. then more waiting, got to chat with the other interviewees (who were so nice!) had some lunch, talked to the tour guide and fellows, and walked around a bit. i felt our tour guide gave us the inside scoop on alot of things, it was great."
