What are your general comments?

"I'm from Columbus, so it was nice to sleep in my own bed before the interview. The day started around 10:45 AM and ended around 4 PM. We began with an introduction to the school and the town, then a brief talk about financial aid and a presentation by a 4th year student. Lunch was a little late so we had a short tour of the school and hospital and then ate with our tour guides. My interview was at 2 PM and the doctor was very engaging and pleasant, but he still adhered to a list of ethical and standard interview type questions. " Report Response
