What are your general comments?

"I was expecting to be grilled on my desire to go into osteopathic medicine, and on the history of osteopathic medicine, etc, but I was not asked any questions about it at all. It was fairly obvious to me that they had decided to accept me before my interview, and that the interview was merely a formality that I had to go through in order to get my acceptance (which I did one week later.) I was actually a little disappointed, because I had really done a good deal of research, and I was eager to discuss osteopathic medicine with a D.O. I tried to lengthen my interview by asking questions like "Do you like working here?" Hey, I tried!" Report Response
