No terminal procedures to teach surgeries, other invasive procedures" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Really friendly atmosphere. Just like everyone said, the interview's like a conversation. I honestly wasn't sure how I did coming out of it because I didn't really get to talk much, the two interviewers talked a lot more about their work, research, programs, etc. than I did about myself. I remember being asked that one question about how I liked my college. The rest of it was conversational. I asked questions throughout the interview, so I kind of got awkwardly choked up at the end when they asked (twice) if I had any additional questions. A few of the conversations they started I wasn't sure if I responded well. I guess it was good enough though since they ended up taking me! One of the interviewers wrote a little note on the letter I received a few days later saying congrats." Report Response
