What are your general comments?

"Morning interview, lunch, then tour. Pretty typical day, just not a typical interview, I would say. The person absolutely combatted every single thing I uttered, even when we talked about the casual topics like sports and where my family was from! I guess it depends on who you are assigned to interview with, and it was not my lucky day. As for the school population, it is extremely diverse. If you are interested in an urban environment in terms of the vast array of medical situations you'll see, this is the place to go. You just have to be willing to deal with an environment where you have to be on your guard at all times." Report Response
