What are your general comments?

"This was one of the hardest interviews I had simply because I was the first interview of the day and when I got there the office was empty. The head MD came out and got me right on time. I had a panel of three interviewers, one MD, one microbiologist and one med student. None of them really reacted when I responded to their questions so it was hard to gauge how I was doing. They could have hated me or loved me and I will never know." Report Response
