What are your general comments?

"Duke was a great place to interview. I was really nervous after reading all of the interview questions on the SDN website, but it isn't as intense as it seems. The questions are difficult, but the interviewers are very receptive and bring you along with them in a conversation to get to know you better. The medical student does have a certain amount of questions to get through, so its best to keep your answers short, sweet, and to the point." -Posted 10/16/2008 | Report Response
