What are your general comments?

"As you can guess, my interview was just as laid back as every one else's. The two doctors were already laughing when I popped my head around the corner, and our conversations were constantly interrupted with comments and laughter. I had a few more straight-up interview questions than I was anticipating, but nothing that caught me off guard. The only complaint I have is all the down time they scheduled in between seminars, tours, and interviews. I guess I was supposed to ''mingle'' and chat with other applicants and current students, but I had no interest in ''mingling'' so there was a lot of down time. To each his own." Report Response
