What are your general comments?

"Three interviews @ 25 minutes each, one-on-one with each interviewer. The interviewers were incredibly nice and easygoing -- by the end of my second interview I was giving book recommendations to my interviewer. Very low-stress, they simply want to see that you're able to talk as a person. Interviews are open file, but your MCAT/GPA are blacked out, so they can see the rest of your AMCAS (essays/ECs/LoRs) -- they will have read your app and they WILL ask questions about your essays, so be prepared to field questions about anything you wrote in your essay."
