What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was great! The medical student was not very talkative and did not smile at all but I tried to communicate with him more when I asked questions. My other interviewer was a retired professor and it was really easy to talk to her. My advice to everyone would be--if you are at a lack of something to talk about and the topic comes up, tell them about a good book your recently read. I've done this at two of my interviews and it has really worked in getting the interviewers excited and involved in listening to you." Report Response
