What are your general comments?

"Basically, this was my first med school interview ever, so I was extrememly nervous and wanted to be prepared but did not want to appear to be memorizing a script. My first interviewer I really couldn't gauge. I almost felt like I wasted time talking about stupid stuff and not really about the strengths of my application. My second interviewer was great though. He really just sat and listened and it was a great genuine, free-flowing conversation. I love this school, maybe because I am a UMass alum but the people and facilities are amazing." Report Response
