What are your general comments?

"GRUELING!!!! BE PREPARED!!!.... J/k relax, you received an interview bc they like something about you. Just be yourself. I think it is an important day, but it's not like they're taking you to the chair. Try to keep a clear head, although I don't advise getting hammered the night before and forgetting everything you prepared for. Most importantly you are the MAN (or WOMAN), for getting an interview. Pat yourselves on the back, you will do fine." Report Response
