What are your general comments?

"Overall, laid back and typical interview questions. And the expected "ethical" question that appears to show up on all these feedbacks. I interviewed in the morning. Met at Student Services Center at 8:30 ( I was 15 minutes late, but okay). Then we (only 3) were shown to the waiting area for interviews. One of us go interviewed first, and the rest of us got to chat a little. Then I interviewed. When I came out, about 10:00, the afternoon interviewers had arrived. Then we got presentations about curriculum, fin aid, & other logistical stuff. Then lunch, then tour with current med students. Ended about 1:25 PM. I drove home at 2 PM. Overall, " Report Response
