"I perused SDN interview feedback and knew some friends who are matriculating there, so everything was pretty much as I had heard." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"they only have your CV/resume and/or secondary application. They stress that the interview is conversational and really just want to see what kind of person you are. They decided your numbers were already good enough to gain their interest, so it purely is about how you are as a person and whether they think you would enjoy being here. Don't stress if you didn't get to talk about ethics, showcase your medical knowledge, or explain some setbacks. Relax, be enthusiastic, and show you're excited to be there." Report Response
