What are your general comments?

"My interview was great. I had a lot of fun the entire day. The interview itself was VERY short and informal. No ethical questions at all. The interviewer was a pediatrician and was the most laid back doc I have ever met. It felt as if they should be getting more info out of me, but they didn't ask that many questions. I will say this though, that was luck of the draw. Some of the others in my interview group got different interviewers and got asked ethical questions and was very formal for them. Not me though :)" Report Response
