What are your general comments?

"Very laid back. My first interview was in Sacramento at the hospital with a pregnant cardiologist who, based on my impression seemed quite brilliant. She showed me some defibrillators and told me how expensive they were - other than that we just talked about my life story and passions and her experience at Harvard Med. My second interview was back in Davis at the Medical college (which is moving to Sacramento for 2006 - huge plus). I was supposed to have a student interview, but she never showed up. So after 4 hrs, Dean Bera asked if I wanted one from him, and so we stepped in his office and talked for 30 min or so. The best part was that my fellow interviewees waited all that time so we could go to dinner and give me a ride to the airport. " Report Response
