What are your general comments?

"It is a very long day, especially after the interviews are over, but everyone is very nice. Rather than disorganized like many other reviewers are writing, I found it to be more laid back and relaxed. Prepare for your service answers! They are HUGE on service! They have a sheet with questions they must ask you (all of the answers are in your application so I don't know why they do closed file) but they talked mostly about your service experience. They want to know they are getting "compasionate, caring" people, and you have to prove it with your resume. One interviewer spent ten minutes telling me about all this great stuff some other applicant had done and then expected me to match it. Then gave me a lecture about what medicine is really about. So watch your words carefully. If you haven't set up a free clinic in Africa, you better describe what service you do have very eloquently. " Report Response
