What impressed you negatively?

"North Philly has never been my favorite place, but the tour guides addressed this issue pretty well, in my opinion." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"This is silly, but lunch is at 1, so if you have an early interview (9am), it's a good idea to bring along a mid-morning snack so your stomach isn't growling through the tour like mine was!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Extremely low key! One poor guy in my group had a stress interview, which is weird since they specifically say that they do not conduct stress interviews...watch out if you get sent over to the cancer research center! My interview was very casual and my interviewer was very friendly. We talked about my time abroad and my work in the emergency department of a Philly hospital (she was an ER doc). Other than that, I asked a lot of questions and that kept the conversation going. I wasn't asked too many questions-it was more a conversation." Report Response
