DD had a question during an interview her senior year for an entry-level strategic management position with a consulting firm that asked how to best help an island country that had been devastated by an earthquake (pre Haiti). She had had plenty to talk about during the first three interviews with this firm but really had no strategic management experience at that time.

DS's best interview was a one-on-one breakfast meeting. He had a lot of relevant experience and pretty much already had the job. He said the guy talked nonstop for a hour and would not shut up, so there weren't even questions DS could answer (or ask himself). At the end of the meal he told DS he was awfully quiet (he's not).

Do women still see male obgyns? I think I've only seen a male obgyn one time in my entire life.
