What are your general comments?

"I go there and checked in, then walked 7 min. to the outpatient building where my faculty interviewer's office was. The interview was very low stress and conversational. I felt like he really wanted to know what I thought about things. We went interviewed for an hour and then he took me around his facility, which was great. I was late for the tour, but luckily spotted the group on my way back. I missed the county hospital, but the other facilities seemed okay. The lunch was in the fancy faculty club and was yummy. After lunch was my student interview, which was so lovely and low stress. My interviewer seemed very happy with everything and answered all of my questions." Report Response
