What impressed you positively?

"The facilities of the campus. I couldn't believe how huge only the children's ER was!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The rudeness especially lack of respect for cultural heritage that one interviewer conveyed during the interview. On top of that, this interviewer did not introduce himself." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Getting back to the hotel may be difficult--shuttle service doesn't run after certain hours." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Norfolk is a naval community predominately Caucasian with African Americans living towards the outskirts. I can only assume that my interviewer figured a student of ethnic minority would meet resistance in this town and wanted to see how I would deal under pressure. Future interviewees should not panic over this, but I want them to be aware of my experience--after this the other interviews were much easier. " Report Response
