What are your general comments?

"The day was long and drawn out. The tour seemed almost unnecessary because the Temple health campus will only be used a bit during 3rd year and thats not a sure thing. The interview experience was relaxed and short. The interviewer went through my file and affirmed that I was definitely interested in Podiatry. The most stressful part of the day was at the end when David Martin did an impromptu open-file group interview and put everyone on the spot in front of the other candidates. Some were even asked "Why did you change your mind about __(dental, med, etc)_____ to podiatry" in front of the group." Report Response
