What are your general comments?

"Overall this was a really easy interview. My faculty interviewer had a habit of giving very long and in-depth accounts of his past and his views on medicine and society. For example, I mentioned that I had read up considerably on the state of our healthcare system. He proceeded to tell me how medicine has changed considerably during his career, his experiences as a medical school applicant, a medical student, etc. During his long narratives, I had to make an effort to squeeze in a few words about myself. My student interview was very laid back. She let me talk about anything I wanted to say about myself and seemed genuinely interested in my experiences." Report Response
