What are your general comments?

"Two or three people will be interviewing you at the same time. There will be a barage of ethical questions. The interview is conducted in a small quiet study room in the library, which has very big windows. Even though they ask a lot of ethical questions, the interviewers do it in an informal manner so it is not too stressful. For these types of ehtical questions, just think about your answer for a few seconds before speaking. Then pick a side, justify your stance, and don't sway from it no matter what else the interviewers say." Report Response
