What are your general comments?

"Stay at the on-campus hotel. It's a very short walk to the medical center, or, you can take their free shuttle to the exact interview location. I had this one oddball interviewer, who started out nice, conversational, then went into a long string of convoluted ethical and technological imaginings. These ethical questions were VERY random, most not medically related, a couple were quite offensive. To give you an example: "What do you think of people who come to our country illegally, don't bother to learn English, and then use taxpayer dollars when they go to the ER?" or "Don't you think people nowadays are too touchy, and they don't think about how those who have less PC opinions (i.e. homophobes, creationists) feel when they're attacked?" Technological, as in he mentioned a recent finding of, like, nanomachines or something, that go in the blood stream. I responded with interest, surprise, and a bit of skepticism. I asked him about the mechanism, and he said, Oh, you know, at the atomic level. I asked him what medical center/university was doing this. He said, oh, actually, it's just something I think would be cool, that people should look into, that should be coming soon. This went on for over an hour, more towards 1.5 hours. ..."
