What are your general comments?

"I got REALLY lucky with my two interviewers. One was an older man (OB-GYN) -- very much like a grandfather. I started talking about myself, my motivations for medicine, and this slowly turned into a conversation about my career aspirations, medicine as it fits into the greater context of my life...etc. Other interviewer was UTSW alum -- pediatric anesthesiologist. He asked me about my research (Alzheimer's), qualities of a good physician, my strengths/weaknesses. Again, it turned into a two-way dialogue. Both interviews ran over the 30-minute allotted time-frame -- the time absolutely flew. Overall, I think what made this an amazing interview experience was that I went in feeling REALLY relaxed for some reason. This is what everyone says, but it's true: BE YOURSELF! I felt pretty good leaving this UTSW interview...and even better with the acceptance email. " Report Response
