"Im from Rutgers University NB. and work in the research towers so I felt really comfortable knowing that i had an interview with a phd. I think I may have been too relaxed becasue 1/2 way into the interview I felt like i was being grilled about my project...understandable....But I found it a bit nerveracking that he really made me prove why I want to be a doctor and seemed to question all my answers. BUt in all, It went pretty well. I hope I get in" Report Response
