What are your general comments?

"The day went well, it is really organized. Normally everyone has 2 interviews, but I was asked to do a third at the end of the day. First interviewer was a PHD in anethesiology with a thick german accent and seemed to not really care about what I had to say. Last two interviews (M3 and Internist) were better as they at least gave some feedback. I was dissapointed that we didnt get to see the hospitals at all." Report Response
