What are your general comments?

"I interviewed first with a second-year medical student and then an orthopedist. The second interview was supposed to be more of a ''get-to-know-you'' type, but both interviews felt like more of a Q&A session. Both my interviewers were nice, but seemed to be just focused on plowing through ''committee-written'' questions rather than engaging in a conversation to get to know me. Also, before the interviews, we were given a ''pop quiz'' which asked ''What was the most challenging experience you have gone through and how did you deal with it?'' I think the ''pop quiz'' question changes for each interview day." Report Response
