    Some of you may remember me as the woefully unprepared interviewee a couple of days ago. Since it's now over, i thought i'd toss out a couple of quick impressions i received.

    Firstly, i took you guys sage advice and looked up some info on the school so i could talk about it- value-none. Never asked.

    I did some stem cell, science issues research so i'd be up on it. Value-none. Never asked.

    What i didn't do was any ethical dilemmas. Bad idea. My first interviewer, an old radiologist was HEAVY into that. It started off nicely - some jokes and stuff, but soon he bought out the big guns: 7 people, 1 kidney. 1 patient, happens to have raped my wife. Me, supposed to execute someone. He had me on the ropes for about 1/2 an hour (seemed like 4) in rapidfire questioning. A rough way to start as this was my first.

    Another surprise was that they really seemed to try to sell us the school- lots of 'we're so good at this...' type stuff.

    Clothes- EVERY guy had a suit. Very funeral. Women were 1/2 pants, 1/2 skirts. None stuck out and it broke up the navy/black clothing monotony.

    Got a couple more in the next few weeks. if interested, check interviewfeedback under Trek_OCLV for my full insight.

    I don't think suits look funereal. I think a guy in a stylish suit and tie looks wonderful.

    P.S. I'm female.

    Hmmmmmmm....Interesting. Was it what I said, or how I said it? Wonder if it's relevant that I'll be wearing a pants suit to any interviews I'm lucky enough to get.
