What are your general comments?

"There are three 15 minute interviews with three different staff members. Two were MD's and one was a PhD. The interviews were very relaxed and conversational. They didn't ask any intimidating questions, and the 15 minutes really goes by faster than you would like. I found myself rushing my speech sometimes because I knew I was on the clock, but if you speak slowly and just keep up with the interviewers pace you'll be fine. In fifteen minutes they don't expect to get your entire life story, so just be yourself and create a nice first impression. " Report Response
