What are your general comments?

"It was a great interview, I spoke with Dr. Carl Thompson from the physiology department (a PhD) and he was personable, funny and easygoing. The hardest part was when he asked me what would make me stand out against the other applicants, and when I was done with the self-marketing he replied "well, i'm not sure that's going to do it." Then I spoke some more, it seemed he wanted me to really sell myself and my personal qualities. Good news is after that he said "yeah, that'll definately do it." I felt like he really wanted to know about me, there wasn't anything about ethics or policy. Anyone who interviews with Dr. Thompson in the future will be pleased, he's a very kind man (and also a boyscout leader!). " Report Response
