What are your general comments?

"Interview was relaxed. The people were very nice, but you got the feel they were nice to everyone, so it was hard to gauge how you were doing. I had one somewhat grumpy interviewer who would interject with somewhat strange and sometimes negative comments. The staff in general seemed to really be in love with the place. Lots of presentations from various people, so you felt like you got lot of persectives on the school. One of the fellows spoke about how when he went on rotations, he was given greater leway from the get go because the school was so well respected. " Report Response
