What are your general comments?

"It was a great experience, everyone was really nice, and really excited about the new program. They gave free mugs, candy and pens. Having 30 interviewers that day was pretty overwhelming, but make sure to sit up front during the presentations. The facilities aren't done so the tour is wack, except the SIM-MAN, but you can tell they really want everything to be hi-tech, and it will be. There were three interview situations: (1) 2 on 1 closed file formal 30min, (2) 1 on 1 open file 10min, (3) 2 on group, make a def'n of professionalism, how to implement, and teach. (4) I had a feeling I was being evaluated all day though, especially during lunch. " Report Response
