What are your general comments?

"No, I wasn't asked to open any windows. When Harvard says they don't conduct stressful interviews, they mean that the interviews are not in a class by themselves -- they resembled basic med school interviews, with an average stress level. All the facilities there are nice. Not having a big home base hospital has positives and negatives. My hosting experience was great." -Posted 11/30/2003 | Report Response
