What are your general comments?

"Interview was awesome. In MSAR, NJMS stated that their interview is made to be very stress-free. It turned out that's exactly what I experienced. My interviewer was a great person. He was more interested in seeing how I could reason and handle his questions off my feet than judging if my answer matched his. Tour was nice. Their ER is a great place to get clinical experience b/c they receive all kinds of cases. " Report Response
