What are your general comments?

"My interviews were in the afternoon, so my day started with a brief talk by the Dean, followed by lunch with a bunch of very talkative, super nice med students. My tour was truncated due to my first interview. My first interview was with a really cool M4, so it was relaxed and conversational. My second interview was with a very nice, busy clinician who basically read off a list of questions, meaning the interview was over in 20 minutes max! Overall, it was a well-organized, pleasant interview day. " Report Response
