What are your general comments?

"Well I was second to last to go, so the DO and PHD both left and I just had one person Ms Fox who is vice president of admissions. It made it really relaxed since it was one person. I hate panel interviews! We started talking about how my mom hates to fly and is married to a delta pilot and from there we just talked the whole time. She asked me about two questions. The only thing that worries me is that she didn't ask me why PCOM? I thought that is like the most important. Who knows." Report Response
