What are your general comments?

"UCSF is my top school so I was really nervous going into my interview. I didn't review any questions before my interview because I was afraid it would make me even more anxious. The essay was harder than all the other schools I had interviewed at before but it may just be my group. The interview was very laidback and conversation. Many questions were follow up questions to my answers. While other people had 35 minute interviews, I had a 20 minute one and the interview told me in advance. I came out feeling great because I felt like I showed them my true self. I didn't feel like I sounded rehearsed. The asked about my extracurriculars and I answered it with excitement and obvious passion. At the end, when they asked if there was anything else I wanted to tell them about myself, I took this opportunity to tell them about much I wanted to go to UCSF and why they should pick me. I also prepared questions to ask them at the end. I'm writing this almost two months after my interview. I found out two weeks ago that I was accepted. " Report Response
