"Overall, the interview was incredibly relaxed. I had a clinician, a scientist and a MSII. They were really interested in finding out who I was and why I was interested in UNE and osteopathic medicine.

But in truth, the interview really was just about finding out who I was and what I could offer to UNE." Report Response
