What are your general comments?

"It was a very laid back interview! It was fun with only a small group of 8 interviewees, because we got to interact. It was helpful attending a PBL session, you really get to see how it works; it's amazing how advanced the students seem in their clinical knowledge even at the beginning of year II! The completely blind interview style was a little harder than you would think, because they know NOTHING about you, so you sort of have to keep explaining yourself, in addition to trying to answer questions and make a good impression. With that said, it was conversational, and the faculty was SO nice, so it wasn't too bad at all." Report Response
