What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I should have done more self-analysis--not just medically related topics. My 2nd interviewer really focused on philosophical inquiries. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I arrived at UNC the day before my interview and checked to make sure that nothing had changed with the interview or interviewers and they said no. The next morning, however, both of my interviewers were different. My first interviewer was a fill in for the original so she had just received my file and was flipping through it during the interview. My 2nd interview was about an hour late so they asked me to tour with the rest of the group and go to lunch and return back (when everyone else was leaving) for my 2nd interview with another person.
