What are your general comments?

"I had a great interview experience. My first interview was with a medical student who was very nice, and very laid back. MSUCHM goes out of their way to make you feel relaxed before you interview. You have lunch with the med-students and go on a tour before you interview. My second interview was with a doctor, and he was very nice as well. However, he was a huge advocate of socialized medicine, which I wasn't really prepared for, since I have only heard bad things about it." Report Response
