"VERY unorganized day. There was something else going on in the waiting area the day I interviewed, so there wasn't a waiting room for the interviewees...we were crammed together into a cubby hole. My student interviewer couldn't really answer my questions though she was a third year. When asked if she wanted to practice medicine in underserved areas, her answer was, "No way."
