What are your general comments?

"One interviewer (PhD), really friendly guy. Was cracking jokes and making things pretty comfortable, but then asked a tough question about my crappy MCAT score and some bad grades - but the awkward thing was that he did it with a smile. It's as if someone you are getting along with really well just kicks you in the balls and then keeps on smiling and talking as if nothing happened. It was just weird how it played out. Be prepared to ask a lot of questions. I knew this coming in and had a boat loade of good questions. " Report Response
