What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"my religious convictions- I think this line of questioning is inappropriate (you want a doctor with moral fiber and good sense of ethics right?). However, the underlying concern is that you will take advantage of others in compromising situations- so I spoke to that concern, and how I respect those of other backgrounds, beliefs etc. If you have strong religious convictions be prepared to answer this concern/question of how you deal with those of other faiths/backgrounds- 5 of the 7 interviews I did at various schools asked me about this " Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?
