What are your general comments?

"UAB doesn't believe in "stress interviews," so I basically had three conversations. I couldn't believe how nice everyone was about my record. I knew that each of my interviewers really wanted to represent me well by the efforts they made to really get to know me. In fact, most of the time was spent trying to recruit me. One interviewer even gave me tips for the next one! I left feeling fantastic." Report Response
