What are your general comments?

"USC was my first interview which made me nervous. My self-inflicted nervousness carried over to my faculty interview. My interviewer was tough but good since we never had an awkward silence. I got a really hard ethical question....my advice...just be honest. Also, approach the ethical questions as a thinking game...take your time to process the question and your answer. All in all, both the faculty interviewer and the medical student were interesting to talk to. BE POSITIVE, RELAX, and HAVE FUN. " Report Response
