What are your general comments?

"Interviewer #1 was wonderful. The entire interview was very conversational. The first thing he said was “I think you’re going to make an outstanding doctor,” which made everything else easy. We laughed a lot and sat around swapping stories. Easy breezy… Interviewer # 2 tried to ask intelligent questions about my research, which was ridiculous because she didn’t know anything about the subject. She kept asking irrelevant questions and I (tactfully) tried to answer the questions without making her feel like an idiot. Her other question, however, were very specific to my application and demonstrates she thoroughly reviewed my application before the interview. " Report Response
