What are your general comments?

"the whole morning is really inefficient. they give you about 45 min to fill out the secondary-- which is really short (bring your resume to help fill it out)and then everyone has to sit there while people are interviewed on at a time. half way through, another interviewer arrived,which sped things up a little. the interview isn't really stressful, just make sure you know as much as you can about osteopathy. i'd bring a book."
