What are your general comments?

"Overall, a great experience, but not what I expected. I thought the interviewers were going to grill me on medical ethics and current events, but I barely got any questions concerning those topics. All of the interviewers were really nice and laid-back; all asked about my family, which was nice. They said they are gearing the questions a little differently this year, focusing on more relaxed questions in order to really get to know the applicants. Overall, a painless experience."
