What impressed you negatively?

"In my second interview, the interviewer talked the whole time. The only question he asked was, "Do you have any questions for me?" He didn't seem to have a lot of training about how to interview and what had been already covered elsewhere in the day. The diversity of the area is limited as well." Report Response

"How hard it is to get Penn residency, in terms of paying the in-state rate." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You have to really like or not mind being in a really rural area. The day is pretty relaxed, though that might also depend on who your interviewer is. No breakfast, so eat ahead of time. The tour is of the hospital by a volunteer and does not include classrooms or the like." Report Response
