What are your general comments?

"Relaxed, yet still formal. My first interview was at 845am with a DO/MPH. Enthusiastic physician, conversational interview, talked with me at length about how TCOM students get into the clinic setting in the 1st semester. He also talked about how 3rd yr TCOM students typically have experience level to that of a 1st intern (resident). Second interview was at 2pm with Ph.D. Wasn't quite as conversational, more question-answer. He eyes tended to wander around the room a bit, so I wasn't sure if he was paying attention, but he dad ask some insightful questions. We also talked about his research interests, his grant application process, and what he hopes to accomplish with his research projects." Report Response
