What are your general comments?

"Wow, this was the craziest interview ever. My first interviewer wasn't in her office, so I waited about half and hour. Suddenly, she comes running down the hall, telling me, "Hi, come with me--we've got to put out some fires." So I walk into an exam room with her where they're in the middle of a procedure with a patient, and the patient actually ended up asking me most of my interview questions! It was actually pretty fun--the patient had a great personality, as did the dr. My second interviewer had to take me at the last minute because another interviewer cancelled, so he got about 3 minutes notice about me. But we ended up chatting a lot and I was accepted, so beware--crazy days are good!" Report Response
