What are your general comments?

"I had a student interview after a brief tour and the notorious FANTASTIC lunch (with a menu, drink service, etc!) She was an M2, and she didn't ask me anything too difficult though she did ask some current events questions. Then I had an hour to kill before my faculty interview so I watched students play volleyball and ate a muffin, or something. I had to go to LAC hospital to find my interviewer and when I arrived to the hospital I got metal detector checked and proceeded to try and find my interview. I wondered around like a chicken with my head cut off until I found a costodian to ask about my room assignment. He said he had no idea where that was. Everywhere I kept walking security guards would be like ''hey man where are you going?'' Finally I got directed to the main ER where the doc I was supposed to interview with worked. He wasn't there. His nurses then kindly guided me to him in the following minutes. Meanwhile some convict was yelling and spitting at cops as they held him in custody to be treated and a woman was bleeding extensively from a leg wound...but i had an interview. I finally met my interviewer but he was on call! he was the head ER doc that day. He signed a couple requests before needing to find a place to interview...so we interviewed in a patient stall (plastic curtain and all). WE only talked for 20 minutes or so, and he was very pleasant, and then he spent the rest of the time wondering around the ER and showing it off. I felt so special that USC would let me interview with this doc--they took him out of work in order to do so! they really do a good time of schmoozing you..." Report Response
