What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed my day at ECU. This was my first interview so I was extremely nervous when I arrived but the friendliness of the admissions staff and my fellow interviewees helped me to relax a little. The interviews were great...far less scary than I imagined. The atmosphere is really laid back and low stress. It seemed more like having a conversation with two cool strangers instead of having someone drill me with random questions. As long as you know what’s in your app and why you want to be a doc & why ECU, you'll be fine. This was a great first interview experience!" Report Response
