What are your general comments?

"MD/PhD interviewers had a long day, with 2 30 minute interviews in the morning and 2 45 minute interviews with the program director and a former program director in the afternoon. These interviews were very straightforward, and they wanted to know that you had some direction and were clear about your motivations and really wanted MD/PhD. In the morning interviews, I was asked a lot of questions from my autobio and CV, one interview was very casual and one was trying to assess my level of involvement in most of the activities I was involved with. Overall it was very positive, and I came out of each interview feeling good. " -Posted 03/15/2008 | Report Response
