What are your general comments?

"This was a great interview experience. You get one student interview and one with a doc/faculty member. It was very laid back. When asked the toughest question, I was honest and said I didn't know what the reimbursement system currently was. It was fine; he explained it to me, and I then answered. We then spoke about New York (where I am from) and food and stuff. Very friendly. The doc was very nice and let me talk when he asked me a question (you will see some do not). Overall, great...low stress." Report Response
