"The interview was very conversational, very relaxed. I chatted with a lot of the interviewees there that day, and we all felt the same way. I suggest taking the time to talk to the other people being interviewed. I ended up having a great time with them, playing foosball and table tennis in the student lounge. It made the day a lot more fun and relaxing! Don't stress about this interview, just be genuine :)" Report Response
