What was the most difficult question?

"I work at a doctors office (MD, not OD) part time over the summer, and I mentioned in my essay that patients complained about their visits being very quick and impersonal, and that I wanted a profession that would allow me to spend more time with my patients. So they asked me if I thought ALL doctors were like that, and then why I thought that they spent a significantly less amount of time with their patients (it caught me off guard because the doctors in that specific practice are money-hungry, but of course that wouldn't be too appropriate to say in an interview haha). But other than that, none of the questions were all that difficult. " Report Response
