What are your general comments?

"Interview was mostly conversational. He was from Texas as was I and we basically bullshitted for the entire time. The secretary had given him the wrong file the day before and so he had to read it as my interview went on. He never really asked questions, not even the standard ones such as why Vandy or why medicine. He asked me to explain more on a couple of select items in my resume, told me I had a great shot at getting in A medical school, and then gave me a 20 minute speech on why Vandy is good where I interjected every now and then to try and discuss more normal topics. Then we moved on to Texas related things and then questions for him. Honestly I don't know how you'd choose someone with questions like this but i'm crossing my fingers." Report Response
