What are your general comments?

"it was very laid back. the interviewer simply wanted to get to know me. i didn't really even get the "so tell me about yourself" or "Why Hawaii" or "why do you want to be a doctor". I think this is because the answers were in the essays that i wrote. I had the opportunity to ask questions also, and I learned a lot about starting a family and keeping relationships, etc. while in medical school and residency. Interviewer was very open about her past experiences and was very informative about working within a larger organization (ex: Kaiser, Queens, etc.) as opposed to private practice." Report Response
