What are your general comments?

"It was my first interview. I went into it expecting to be challenged and grilled but left feeling like I had spent an hour not really offering them any reason to select me over anyone else. To me, anyone can sit and have a decent conversation. They were very laid back and basically just wanted to get a feel for my personality. UTMB has a very interesting curriculum, but its location coupled with its recent funding struggles make it an unattractive choice for me." Report Response
