What was the most interesting question?

"The first person who interviewed me clearly had some kind of chip on his shoulder. He basically set out to humiliate and insult me. He asked obscure questions about classes (literature, film...) I had taken years ago. He got frustrated when I couldn't remember specific names of authors and film producers and even raised his voice to me! I'm not sure what recalling names of Spanish poets had to do with becoming a physician, but I do know that he succeded in making my decision easy about NOVA. The other 2 interviewers asked me normal questions (ie. my weaknesses, strengths etc), but it did little to make up for the first guy." Report Response
