"this was my first interview so I wish I had known that they take you into the anatomy lab during the tour. I dont faint by seeing bodies obviously ( otherwise im in the wrong profession totally:) but I did eat lunch less than an hour before!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great experience. It was uncanny how much in common I had with the lady who interviewed me. The match up (if indeed they do that) was better than my roommate match in college! It was a one hour conversation and it flew by. Though she was a PhD researcher she was a very well-balanced person and I was glad to meet someone who could talk about and appreciate things out of the ordinary research-related topics. She gave me very positive feedback at the end, which is great to hear during your first interview, and even offered to put me in touch with one of her relatives, who is pursuing the specific career path Im interested in."
