What are your general comments?

"Overall I had a very positive experience at my interview. I, along with everybody else from the looks on their faces, was fairly nervous as the beginning of my day. However it quickly became apparent that we had no need to be nervous - it was a very laid back affair indeed. One of my interviews was with a Ph.D. professor of physiology and another one was with a 4th year med student (which surprised and worried me somewhat as I was not expecting this). Both interviews were pleasant, and I was never presented with any really difficult questions - they mainly wanted to know more about me, why I wanted to go into medicine, etc. In fact, with my interview with the 4th year, I ended up being the one that asked the majority of the questions, wanting to know all about her experience at the school, her likes and dislikes, etc. Others who had different interviewers did get asked some pretty tough ethical questions, so I guess I just lucked out. We had an exit interview with Dr. Kennedy to clear up any questions he might have about your grades, MCAT scores, etc., but I suppose he didn't see any major problems as he didn't ask me questions about those things but instead wanted to know about extracurricular activities and how I liked my college experience."
