"Be prepared to answer questions about your activities or your secondary essays. Also be prepared for ethical scenarios. They're required to ask at least one ethical question but some interviewers take that too literarily and ask more than one. They just really want to see your thought process through it not necessarily the right or wrong answers." Report Response
