What are your general comments?

"Everyone was worried about the ethical questions that would be asked, but I did not encounter any questions of that nature. My interviewers were pretty laid back, and asked good "thinking" questions, but I didn't get the feeling that they wanted to trip me up. Overall, the interview wasn't too stressful, but make sure you prepare for "standard" questions about your motivation, personal attributes, etc." Report Response
