"The doctor who interviewed me seemed very nice and extremely intelligent, but he hardly let me get a word in edgewise during the interview. I barely felt I had a chance to talk about myself, most of the time was spent listening to him talk about what's wrong with healthcare in America, which was very interesting to hear his point of view, but I'm not sure how much information he gained about me that wasn't already in my application."
