What are your general comments?

"Great experience! I left with a much better impression of the program as a whole. The Comprehensive Care Clinic is exactly what I was looking for in my training and everyone on the staff or administration seemed eager to meet all of us. I had four interviews instead of the three because I had a sit down with Minority Recruitment. It wasn't scored but they really seemed like it was more of a recruitment meeting than just ''getting to know you.'' I was kind of thrown off by it, but I guess it was sort of flattering. Outside of that, great experience. " Report Response
