What are your general comments?

"First interview is one on one and open file. You stay in the same room and then two more interviewers come to you. One is a fourth year student and the other a physician. This interview is closed file. The interviews were low stress and very enjoyable. It's not a walk in the park but they are very kind and not in attack mode. In some ways that makes it harder to get a read on how you are doing. Most people feel like they do quite well in interviews like that so only time will tell who get's in and who does not. It takes more than a month to hear from them (that's what they told us anyway). Someone asked about in state and out of state acceptance and the answer given was not really an answer at all. So they avoided that question and I have no idea how they do it." Report Response
