What are your general comments?

"The facilities were nice and the students seemed really happy that they were able to have a life during medical school. The first interviewer seemed more interested in asking a list of questions and then getting me out of there, but the second interviewer was really nice and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know me as a candidate. OHSU was already one of my top choices, and the interview didn't really do anything to make it look better or worse in my eyes. I still wouldn't mind going there, but there was nothing that really blew me away." Report Response
