What are your general comments?

"I interviewed with one PhD and one MD. The PhD was Dr. Pate from the dental branch for some reason and he basically asked me very standard questions. By the end of the interview I did not feel like he had gotten to know ME that much but I had answered his questions. The second one was GREAT. Dr. Potts, the assistant dean of surgery and he was very nice. We talked about baseball and fencing and my future plans in medicine. I actually felt like I connected with the second guy much better. Overall the interviews went really well." Report Response
