What impressed you positively?

"The facillities and monetary resources are just incredible. The scope of the medical center floored me, and it was way way nice than other places I interviewed!

Also: excellent living facilities for students, incredible rec center, support mechanisms for spouses, community-feeling." Report Response

"there's this 80ish old-school-medical-establishment type who I think just likes for mess with with his (female?) interviewees. I think he's just amusing himself and seeing how you handle it, but I got the most inappropriate questions! it wound up being a great, engaging conversation, if somewhat of a debate, but if I hadn't had a sense of humor... I can't believe this man hasn't gotten sued." Report Response

What are your general comments?
