What are your general comments?

"Both interviews were not as bad as other sites, such as the Princeton Review, had made me believe they would be. Unlike most medical schools, there is no "bad guy" interviewer who puts you in an uncomfortable position to see how you react under pressure. The first interview with the Phd is mostly about your experiences and skills in the school and the community. The second interview, which is with an MD, asked me questions more geared towards being a doctor, such as handling controversial issues (abortion, etc.), and health insurance. By far, the second interview (the one with the MD) is much more relaxing and enjoyable." Report Response
