What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed the experience. David Martin was very nice and super easy-going. In fact, he told me he played for the SD Chargers in the late 80s for a very short period of time! Dr. Newman, was my interviewer and was great. He's a big teddy bear type of guy. A bit intimidating at first, but once the interview started I knew it would be really relaxed. He probably talked more about himself than I did about myself! But in the end, Temple is my first choice. " Report Response
