What are your general comments?

"My interview was very straightforward. No ethics questions, in fact, no questions that were meant to make me squirm. My interviewer treated me like a young professional and didn't even ask "Why medicine?" I got the impression that he felt that if I had made it this far, I knew what I was doing. We basically went through my list of ECs one by one and I described them in greater detail. I brought along a minature version of my research poster and showed it to him. It was easier to briefly describe my research by showing him pictures rather than going into long boring detail. I had googled him beforehand and saw that in the 60s he had studied under a surgeon who had a building named after him. When he asked if I had any questions, I asked him about the surgeon. He lit up and pointed to a portrait on the wall and told me that it was that particular man, then he went on to describe this person's philanthropic principles. He said he hoped I got in and he'd write up a good recommendation for me. I couldn't have asked for a better interview." Report Response
