"This was my first interview of the season and I had a great time. While I did not get too much out of the night before the interview program It did give me the chance to meet my fellow interviewees and to sort of share our axiety about the night before. I was able to get many of my questions answered and had new ones to ask at my interview the next day. Both of my interviewers were scientists not Physicians so I made it a point to ask them about their research. overall it was laid back and non threatening." Report Response
