What are your general comments?

"The faculty and student interviews were both very similar. Similar in that both interviewers were very relaxed and laid back. there were no super difficult question and there were no ethical questions. They seemed like they wanted to know more about what i kind of doctor i would become as in how i valued doctor patient relationships and how i would help the undeserved population. my faculty interviewer came right of the OR to give me the interview, in her scrubs and surgical mask. Made me feel important, like they were taking time out of the OR to find out what kind of person i was." Report Response
