I recently had a medical school interview that was scheduled for thirty minutes, but the interviewer stopped asking questions after ten minutes. They then asked "Do you have any questions for me?" and I asked them several questions that lengthened the exchange to twenty minutes. This was my first interview and I was very surprised by how short it was. Should I be concerned? Thanks in advance!

What did the admissions staff tell you regarding your expectations for your interview? Was it open-file? Is it conversational? Are there structured questions or was it unstructured? Do you get only one interview or several?

It's not unusual, but there's not enough information to figure out if this is a problem. Honestly, only the admissions staff would have a clue, and they should not tell you.

Nope, this is not unusual
my guess is either he/she is not a talkative person or they just assigned the interview to the professor as part of his job duties and he/she might even be filling in for someone else, while having no real interest in doing the interview.

Totally not your fault, and not to worry
