What are your general comments?

"The school provides you with a lot of information, such as financial aid info, housing info, and overall school info. They also give you an opportunity to talk to a faculty member that is NOT interviewing you, so you can ask any questions that you may have, or address any concerns. The interview was very conversational. I was nervous for the first five minutes, since it was my first interview, but I quickly relaxed. The interviewer asked some basic questions, such as why you want to be a doctor? or why you want to go to BU?, but nothing too difficult or unusual (all the hard questions were related to my research or extracurricular experiences)."
