What are your general comments?

"The interview was light-hearted. I knew the interviewer indirectly. We belong to the same syndicate of dentists/dental asst. of Hudson County, NJ.

A lot of time spent in talking and discussing different options as a dental student, than asking-answering questions." Report Response
