What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was a very good one. My first interview was given by a PhD and he was extremely relaxed and he made me feel very comfortable for my next interview. I had my first interview before lunch and my second interview was with an MD and he was more formal but still very nice. The lunch was salad, the chicken didn't suit my stomach very well so I suggest going vegetarian for the interview day. I got lots of questions specifically relating to my application and past experiences. Very standard questions nothing out of the ordinary." Report Response
