What was the most difficult question?

"Your friend is unknowingly dating a girl that you know to be positive for an STD. What do you do? (I felt this was pretty cut and dry because I felt it was an issue of protecting public health, so I answered that I talk to the girl privately about telling my friend about her diagnosis and that if she refused I would have to resort to telling my friend to protect himself. I think the interviewer didn't like the conclusion I came to and for the rest of the interview the interviewer was cold and distant.)" Report Response
