What are your general comments?

"It was okay. I didn't get a chance to bring up some of things that I wanted to bring up (e.g. volunteer work that I started after submitting my application). I didn't feel like the questions they asked allowed much of my personality to show through (plus I was really nervous!). Waaay too many questions about health care and gov't policy and research which are two least interesting areas for me to talk about. The interviewers were polite and said right at the beginning that they wanted to keep it relaxed and informal which was nice since I knew what to expect. I didn't get any ethics questions which is surprising for the U of A. " Report Response
