"My faculty interview was very conversational, but the conversation was directed by questions about my personal statement. It was mainly a discussion of things that I wrote about and how I felt about them." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Tell me what your parents think of their health care. We had been speaking about health care services and cost shifting, but this was a little difficult to answer as I have not had really in depth discussions with the folks about their insurance.
