What are your general comments?

"I interviewed with a very nice lady, who was well-prepared for my visit. Before I walked in, she studied my application from top and bottom and wrote down 4-5 pages of notes and questions. She told me that she will be presenting me to the committee and that her goal was to learn more about me so that she can make a strong case for me. We proceeded to some standard questions regarding my family background, personal attributes/qualifications, clinical experiences, educational background. After that, she asked some difficult ethical questions. Although difficult, these questions were very predictable so I didn't have much problems with them. My interview was supposed to go 60 minutes max. It ended up going over 85 minutes. I have to say, I was very fortunate. My interviewer cannot be any nicer and more supportive. " Report Response
