What are your general comments?

"The interview was extremely laid back and very conversational. I interviewed with a basic scientist who gave a brief background on his research, then started asking conversational questions about my motivations, clinical experiences, research, etc. My interviewer definitely fostered a great dialogue throughout, and allowed me to really express myself. I was really impressed by the school's atmosphere and its many community health initiatives." Report Response
