What are your general comments?

"Good interview...~50 students there during the whole day, but interviews were spread throughout the whole day. Lots of information thrown at once without any handouts...in one ear and out the other. First interview date for regular admissions. There were 2 interviews. The first was open file with a member of the selection committee...consisted a total of 30 minutes. Directly afterwards was another interview that was semi closed (no access to grades, courses taken, GPA, MCAT) and was done with a physician (alumni) and a 4th year med school." Report Response
