What are your general comments?

"The director of admissions was very nice, enthusiastic, and encouraging. Overall, she was the most memorable person (others were kind of dry and boring / neutral). After being scheduled for an interview at the hospital, I was told after the tour that my original interviewer would be unable to make it and that I would interview with someone else at the actual medical school. Although this change hardly affected me, I felt like it definitely affected my new interview because I figured it must have been last-minute for him. Thus, I didn't feel he was really in the mood to hold an interview and I felt like I had to defend myself the whole time. It was almost confrontational more than conversational (aka, the ideal interview experience). The tour guides were okay and the facilities were really nice but overall nothing too amazing. The student interview was over lunch and it was difficult to hold much of a conversation because the cafeteria was particularly loud at the time. " Report Response
