Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview as challenging, as I did to get in on my first try to AECOM. The interviewer, after we were finished, told me that he was a lot harder on me than he would be on a first time applicant. He asked me difficult questions, criticized me on many aspects, and the topics we touched on were expansive. We discussed many different subject areas, from biochemistry to histology to american history, as well as discussing me and my personal life. He had read my file very well, and knew everything that was written, as well as making inferences about me that were shockingly correct (something about neurosurgeons). However, he assumed things about me that were untrue as well, and waited as I refuted each untruth. I wanted, at one point in time, to raise my voice and tell him that what he thought was completely untrue, but held my composure and defended myself without getting him defensive in the process. It was definitely stessful, but it was, as I said, blunt and to the point. The answers I gave were concise and clear, and as bad as this may sound, it was the best interview I have had in my life, in terms of medical school and jobs, etc. I enjoyed it as much as I was stressed by it."
