What are your general comments?

"The interview was very smooth, and extremely casual. The MD did not even open my file, she had read it before hand. No specific questions concerning my research, healthcare, ethics etc....nothing specific what-so-ever. The questions that I have listed actually came up very generally in conversation. My interviewer admitted jokingly, that they have been asked not to scare the candidates - so don't get nervous. I asked around, and the general consensus is that interviews at NJMS are usually low stress" Report Response
