What are your general comments?

"The interview was held in Portland, OR for West coast kids who found it easier to interview in Portland than fly back to Des Moines. Everyone was wonderfully friendly and informative. There was a good student panel--first years to a recent graduate--to help answer questions and demonstrate OMM. Because of the size of the interviewing group, there was quite a wait for the kids interviewing later in the day. An excellent lunch was provided by the Marriott Hotel. Generally, a very relaxed day." Report Response
