What are your general comments?

"I arrived there around 9:30, and waited a good deal of time while others were being interviewed. During that time I chatted with other prospective students, watched a video about some teenage med students who attend UMDNJ, and then went to lunch. (It might be interesting to note that there are different proffesor interviewing in the morning than in the afternoon.) I felt incredibly nervous going into the interview, though once it started, I found it to be very low stress. The questions asked were very standard, very easy questions to answer. The proffesor who interviewed me had a great personality and even began to crack a few jokes halfway through the interview. The interview lasted only 20-25 minutes. When I left the interview, I had no clue how I did. I was informed that admissions meets at specific dates and that thier next review date was October 18th. That was almost a month away! After an entire month of stressing out I finally received the infamous telephone call and was accepted. WOO HOO! In conclusion, I'll be in the UMDNJ-SOM class of 2009. Good luck to everyone."
