What are your general comments?

"Being that it was my first interview I was very nervous, but I was so relieved because it was pretty painless. The interviewers have to ask the 4 formal questions with no feedback, but afterwards you get to talk more informally with them. I ended up asking my interviewers questions for a good portion of the informal part. Also, we had to sit in a conference room with all the other interviewees for quite awhile while others were interviewing. It was actually really interesting getting to know all of them and they were all really nice people." Report Response
