What are your general comments?

"so my faculty interviewer gave me a really hard time regarding the healthcare system issues and really wouldn't let it go. didn't feel like she wanted to get to know me as a person at all, which was unfortunate. she seems to think that only people who truly understand the healthcare system and who know how to solve this problem deserve to be physicians. i personally think there is a lot more other attributes that make a good physician. their system is also weird because you're suppose to call your interviewer the day before to confirm the appointment, but they didn't post that information until the day before. then they also called and changed my appointment time later in the afternoon after i had already confirmed my appointments. had i been flying from out of state, it would not have worked out. the only good thing was that lunch at the faculty club was nice. im disappointed that i wasn't more impressed with the school. i've been to more than enough interviews this app cycle and this was definitely one of the worst experiences."
