What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There's a lot of down time depending on your interview slot: Each applicant gets a 45 minute interview block, starting at 7:45 running to 3:30 (skipping 11:00 - 1:00 for the tour and lunch). You might end up waiting for the tour / lunch or for your interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Dr Willmore likes to ask about details- if you mention something, make sure you know a fair amount about it. He pushes to the point where he knows you won't know something. When that happens, just say you don't know. I interviewed with Dr. Graham. He only interviews one applicant a day (Dr. Willmore interviewed about half the group). Dr. Graham is a pathologist, so he gets to the point, and may not act incredibly interested. But don't worry, that's not necessarily a bad thing." Report Response
