What are your general comments?

"The day was confusing with over 100 students interviewing and it felt like you received little attention. The interviewer was more interested in seeing how I dealt with his constant barrage of ethical questions. Every answer I had for a question was quickly followed by a, "Well... what if..." comment in which the question was changed so I needed to respond again. For example, the number of times I caught the doctor drinking was increases and multiple possible excuses from the drunk doctor were posed to try to trip me up." Report Response
