What are your general comments?

"I was the first interview to go in the morning which was good because I did not have to wait around all day. I had two interviewers, one a doctor and the other a fourth year medical student. Both of them were very nice and made the interview comfortable. They let you express yourself because they ask very open-ended questions, but be careful because they ask you many questions based on your answers, and it is easy to back yourself in a hole as I did."
