What are your general comments?

"Before this interview, I interviewed at 3 other schools, and this was by far the most interesting interview. I felt the interviewers knew me so well (almost more than I knew myself it felt like) because their questions were very direct and to the point, based on what I put on my application. So definitely know your application well!!! Because the questions were not as general as I was used to, I felt like they were kind of grilling me and came out feeling kind of down. This year, UCSF interviewed less people, so you hava a better chance of getting in if you got an interview. About 6 weeks later, I found out I was accepted! =)" Report Response
