What are your general comments?

"it was nice, my first interview, so it was good practice for the schools i really want to go to. i really was turned off by attitude of students towards class/learning in general. they were nice and nurturing, but i mean you're in med school, you shouldn't need to be babied so much... one guy basically said he would have failed out of medical school had he not received so much care from A&M which other schools may not provide... which i thought was scary (who wants THAT guy as his doctor?)"
