What are your general comments?

"My interview was very very low key. There were basically 3 or 4 teams for interviews and you were assigned to a team and then given a number (ie. you are interviewing with team 2 and you are second). One of the other interviewees was asked ethical questions: "what would you do if one of your preceptors had a substance abuse problem?" "how would you handle a situation where you saw another student cheating?" and so on. But all of the students there are super nice, and they have second years sit with you while you're waiting for your interview and after to help you destress and keep you calm. But really, all you can do here is be yourself... The interview goes really quickly." Report Response
