What are your general comments?

"Two of my inteviewers were really nice and asked me the less difficult questions; why osteopathy, what field of medicine etc. The third guy was more aggressive, he was not unfriendly he just asked the more difficult questions. Someone has to do this, it would be strange if they didnt challenge you in the interview, so expect it. The made it really easy to be as relaxed as possible anyhow. Just be yourself. Stay at the General Lewis, its close and gives you a feel for what the town is about." Report Response
