What are your general comments?

"All in all it was a great interview experience....my first interview and I could not have asked for a better begining of the interview season. I did not have time to go around Indianapolis but did look at the facilities and hospital. Their revised curriculm is great. The interview was pretty laid back and was mostly conversational. We were laughing and the whole situation was pretty light... get-to-know-you kind of stuff.....One interviewer was more interested in how I came to the decision of going into medicine and the other one asked mostly ethical questions and hobbies. We talked about a lot of topics from hobbies to sports i play to what schools I have been to (have been to a lot of schools)...." Report Response
