What are your general comments?

"The interviewers were awesome. They tried to make the situation as comfortable as possible by conducting the interview (really a conversation)in a quiet room devoid of distractions such as phones or other people. They walk you through the maze of a hospital. They seem genuinely sincere in their encouraging you to ask questions (not just as a way to gauge your interest of the school). They give out their contact information afterward. Really they make you as comfortable as possible and actually get to know you without pummeling you with questions. " Report Response
