What are your general comments?

"My experience overall was good. The atmosphere was somewhat laid back, though the actual interview is quite long, mine was almost an hour and a half, thats a long time, so be ready for anything and everything, from standard questions, why medicine, etc, to details about your file, to healthcare and ethics questions. I was asked about my music, and I made a comment about trying not to get into social commentary, but the very next question called me out on it, and asked me specifically how I felt. So there's a lot of questions, but its very conversational and not completely scripted, but a lot of things they will definitely ask. But because its so long you get a good chance to explain yourself well. I had the tour before the interview which was nice, but some have it the other way around." Report Response
