What are your general comments?

"Based on my prior interviews, I was expecting this to be really relaxed and conversational. While my interviewers were by no means rude, they were very question-and-answer, a little bit dispassionate and uninterested. Of course, it all depends on who your interviewers are. I did find it a bit strange that two of my interviewers, an MD and a 4th year, didn't show up. It seemed like everybody in my group got an ethical question. They don't have patient sims and their technology isn't that impressive. They also have quizzes and tests pretty much every week, which depending on who you talk to, is a positive or a negative. Also, if you're driving, bring lots of quarters for the tollways. " Report Response
