What are your general comments?

"I had the first interview of the day. Interview was conducted by two docs and a 2nd year med school student. Overall, I was surprised by how little of the questions were directly about me - most were about issues in health care or bioethics. While I got the impression that all the interviewers were very nice people in their 'real' lives, very little social cues or feedback was given while I was speaking. There was so much more I wanted to talk about, but didn't have time to touch on!" Report Response
