What are your general comments?

"I had one interview with a faculty member and the other with a resident. My faculty interview did not go well because I bombed the ethical questions and few other questions that were asked which I had never thought about before. I think my assessment on my interview performance is correct since I have not heard back from the school for about 10 weeks and people who interviewed after me got their acceptances already. My interview with the student went well though. It was a very laid-back interview and I enjoyed talking with the interviewer. " Report Response
