What are your general comments?

"Everyone arrived at 10am looking sharp (9 ppl). We assembled in a conference room where we were given our agendas for the day and a preso on SP's. We also got to practice on a real SP (pipe up and volunteer!). We then toured the hospital and the classrooms. Afterwards we had lunch and talked about money. Then 3 sets of interviews (you will only go to one) scheduled 45 minutes apart. Mine was the 2nd set so I had an hour to kill. I had 2 interviewers. They asked about me specifically and probed me about my ethics, passion and commitment. Then I asked questions. Guys!-Don't all wear black (it makes you all look the same!)" Report Response
