"Interviewer was very friendly. Asked all the basic interview questions about my extracurriculars, majors, family, experiences, etc. Wanted to know how I became interested in medicine and asked a few general medical ethics questions (nothing too difficult). When she found out I was staying that night in St. Louis, she gave me lots of recommendations on things to do in the city. Part of the interview was more conversational where we discussed books, interests, etc." Report Response
