Interview Experiences
Five one-on-one interviews.
One of my favorite interview days even though I was vomitting the whole day. The staff, residents, and faculty were some of the best people I met on the trail.
Grand rounds, 1 on 1 interviews, chairman emphsized wanting 'nice' people.
Grand rounds followed by presentation, then broken into 2 groups. 1 interviews (all 1on1), the other group van tour of Ann Arbor.
Well organized. Bus and walking tour. 5 two-on-one interviews with faculty, one with residents, and one with the chair.
grand rounds, 6 interviews, tour of campus, dinner after
