"My interviewer read over my file for a few minutes before calling me in to talk with him. He was friendly and started off the interview with a comment about UT football (because UT just beat his favorite team Georgia the week before) and some other questions about where I was from. This really loosened me up and put me at ease. He then told me what he thought G'town had to offer me. From there he asked me about my motivation for entering medicine, and things progressed from there. Very conversational and laid-back." Report Response
