What are your general comments?

"The overall experience was good. Everyone had 2 back to back 30 minute one-on-one interviews. The first interviewer has access to your entire file, including grades, and the other interviewer can only see your essay and activities. I had a great first interviewer who really just tried to get to know me and focused on what I had done to prepare for medical school. My second interviewer was a little different from the others because he was put in on short notice, so unfortunately he had not seen my file and could only ask me basic questions. The only negative part of the day was that we had a whole hour to wait around by ourselves, so I wish I had brought a magazine or something. " Report Response
