What are your general comments?

"Amazing for the first interview. Was like a conversation with a new friend about topics I enjoyed like medicine and politics. He was so nice that after my interview I was skeptical of how genuine he had been. My advice, like most advice you've been given, is to be as honest as possible. Be passionate and discuss what it is about you that makes you passionate about medicine and Carolina. My second interviewer asked me some tough questions and made me doubt my candidacy, DON'T be discouraged, I got in and it was because of who I've been and what I've done, not high MCAT scores and extravagant GPA."
