What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview so I was not sure of what to expect. I probably studied up on the school too much because I wasn't presented very many opportunities to flaunt my knowledge in the interview. They really just want to get to the heart of who you are and occasionally ask you a hard question from which they will be able to judge your ability to respond and stay composed. I came out of there very excited and positive about UTH, but my later interviews turned out to be the same thing." Report Response
