What are your general comments?

"I was worried about getting slammed with ethical questions as per EVMS' reputation, however, I was very pleasantly surprised at how smoothly the interview went. You have to set the tone from the get go though. My advice: Dont freeze up to their intimidating looks- they're not pissed, they're trying to phase you; laugh/smile a lot and try to make it more like a conversation; look at each interviewer in the eye. Dont give cookie cutter answers- stick to your opinion, even if you dont know that much about the topic, just admit that but go with your gut. " Report Response
