What are your general comments?

"The interviewer was at the medical office of an alum of SGU and while he seemed a little intimidating at first, overall the interview style was laid back. The most stressfull part of the interview was when you first sit down, you have 10 minutes to write an essay while he reads over your app. The essay topics are easy (Why do you want to be a docotr? Describe a memorable occurance that influenced you? what 3 characteristics should a physician possess?). After the ten minute essay he just read off of a list of simple questions for about half an hour and then left it open for you to ask your own questions. Very low stress and he seemed to know a lot about the school and its programs. " Report Response
