What are your general comments?

"I've had a handful of interviews that have been pretty much all the same (basic personal questions). I didn't really expect the NU interview to be too much different. Since it was a panel, I'm guessing they didn't just want to hear 3 people talk about why they would make a qualified doctor so they asked almost all hypothetical questions. This seems to be the consensus with most of the people i've spoken to about the interview." Report Response
