What are your general comments?

"Overall it went alright. They do their best to calm you before the actual interviews. My first interview was with a doctor who was not very friendly. She asked many questions and literally would write down every word I said, often feeling that I had to stop and wait for her to catch-up, which made me lose my thought process. The second interviewer was very chill, laid back and talkative (but precise and focused). He had his feet up on the desk and was swearing rather often, which actually did a good job to relax me."
