What are your general comments?

"The two interviews were very laid back. My first interviewer was a volunteer who was a full-time neonatal physician in private practice. He was very helpful in describing what the school was like and did a great job in presenting both the strengths and weaknesses of the program for me. The second interview was with a research coordinator who asked very interesting questions that integrated into a smooth conversation. I hardly felt I was being interviewed! " Report Response
