What are your general comments?

"It was very conversational, which makes identifying individual questions difficult. There was a nice ebb and flow, where I'd talk for a while, then she would. I think it helps to know what you're talking about. I wasn't asked any tought health policy or ethics questions, but I was prepared to discuss them, and we talked politics for a while. Thankfully we were of the same mind. She even unexpectedly said that it wasn't such a bad thing to be sheltered, because she was sheltered herself. So not having had a wealth of diverese experiences in the past didn't seem like a big negative, probably provided you want to seek them now." Report Response
