What are your general comments?

"they started off conversationally. everyone introduced themselves and tour was given. i was overall impressed with the facilities but it is a small college. and has low ethnic and cultural diversity. i wish i had prepared better for the interview by writing out my answers and somewhat memorizing the key points. most of the questions asked were directly from the interview feedbacks ive read at sdn and by writing out my answers i wouldve been better prepared. they also asked what did i learn from several job exp that would help me in medicine and i wish i had better prepared to answer questions of that nature as well" Report Response
