What are your general comments?

"Absolutely a great experience. I was definitely nervous going in, but mhy interview ended up lasting fo 90 minutes. The interviewer was great, very friendly and cordial, and also very thoughtful and the interview was much more of a back and forth conversation and we both asked eachother questions throughout. The school itself is awesome--they do everything and then some in terms of their med studnets, and it shows in the interview process. enjoy the experience, know your primary application well, and be yourself! good luck!"
