What are your general comments?

"I think my interests were matched, because both of my interviewers were female cancer researchers. My first interviewer asked very detailed questions about the research I assist in, i.e. how do specific assays work, how do the drugs work mechanistically. It felt like the Spanish Inquisition. But, in fairness, this was my first interview, extremely nervous, and obviously underprepared to answer pretty straighforward questions. The second interviewer was much warmer and more encouraging of my interests, so a negative impression of MD balanced out to neutral. " Report Response
