What are your general comments?

"The overall process was great except for the "lecture" right before the personal interviews. Right before the interview, you kind of want some time to prepare yourself mentally and we didnt really have that. The personal interview turned out to be a very laid back conversation about certain things on your application they were unsure about or wanted further information on. We talked through current events for a bit, talked about Boston in general, talked about doing residency in the future and some other stuff. There was a little bit of tension between all the applicants, not too bad though." Report Response
