What are your general comments?

"I had a conversation with the coolest/nicest lady, ex-head of Psych dept and Director of Residency program. Nit-picked about every aspect of my AMCAS for 40 minutes, talked about family, my mom's passing due to cancer, and the essay on diversity I wrote for them (which had some strong statements she wanted to ask about). We then had some really good convos about understaffing at the DMC, Psych-related issues for kids (some from my shadowing experience), and our opinions on Press-Gainey surveys (that was a fun one). Overall, a great convo and a very encouraging one." Report Response
