What are your general comments?

"I had an afternoon interview, so I arrived via taxi around 10:15a for the tour scheduled for 11:00a. I talked to the other interviewees, had the tour, then lunch with M2's, then waited around 20 minutes for my interview. I had to go from the school across to the hospital across the street but the directions were excellent. The interview was really laid back and I actually enjoyed this part of the day the most. Definitely very low stress, nothing tough and mostly just casual conversation. After the interview I was free to go (around ~2:15p)." Report Response
