    I heard that Jefferson interviews are generally known as laid-back and most feel good about them. But wouldn't ya know, I got an interviewer, Dr. Zager, that was mean-spirited and probing. It kind of comes down to luck if you get a nice one or not and also if the two of you 'connect', so I'm not asking for sympathy :) , but was wondering if anybody had her as an interviewer and how did you feel about her? It's a shot in the dark, but thought I'd ask you guys.

    Hey!!!

    I had Dr. Zager too, but I thought she was quite nice. We both lived in Houston for a while, so we talked about that about half the time. The rest was the usual med school interview stuff. Although....maybe she didn't like me after all, since I got put on the alternate list at Jefferson despite having higher numbers than their averages (and I'm not an ORM or URM, so I don't think that factored in). Ahh well...

    DrBlueDevil--thanks for your reply. At least now I have an opinion of her other than my own, which I thank you for. I don't know what it was, but I just felt uncomfortable and like she didn't believe/take seriously what I was saying. But hey, it's gotta happen after all the interviewee stories they've heard yr after yr.

    Would you mind if I ask you the month you interviewed and when you heard back?
