"The Dean (Witzburg) is a very entertaining guy who spoke to us in the morning and then at the end of the day. He seems like a very good storyteller, and he makes anything he says sound interesting. The interview itself was pretty low-stress, but my interviewer kept coming back to ''why did you decide on medicine as a career choice'', because of my previous background." Report Response
