What are your general comments?

"The interviewer was a "famous syrgeon", but he did not seem to care much about me. He was nice, but the interview was very short (30 min) and he kept glancing at his pager/email the whole time. It felt like he did not really care about what I had to say. It really made me feel horrible, especially since Vanderbilt prides itself with its "laid back" "we want to know you" interviews."
