What are your general comments?

"Very non-stress interview. I felt like it was a conversation peppered with the usual, to be expected, interview q's (Tell me about your research. Why medicine now? Family? Where are you in 10yrs? Strengths/weaknesses? etc). I heard a couple other candidates talking about their interviews: one talked heavily about health care, another mentioned a lot of ethical situations. So it's sorta luck of the draw on who you get and what direction they take you. But I think everyone would still say, no matter what the focus, that the interview was conversational and not confrontational. Watch out future candidates, Dr. Hinkley hinted about a ''behavioral'' interview in the future -- joking that we wouldn't be able to predict the questions based on SDN feedback. Interesting.
