What are your general comments?

"My interviewers were both extremely nice and not out to get me in any way. They were both casual and conversational, however they definitly had a list of prepared questions they wanted answers for. The first interviewer asked me a million questions in 30 minutes...down to the books I was reading...to what my family was like...to what my opinion was about problems in health care. He was ready to ask the next question before I started answering the last! Nice but intense. The second interview was with a researcher who was a great listener and took notes on everything I said. Opposite extremes, but great people with good intensions. I fell in love with the school. The campus buildings were old, but had character. The hospitals were new and amazing. The people were friendly and down to earth. The interview day as a whole was a great experience." Report Response
