What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview, but it went pretty good. Everyone was very nice and seemed to care about the success of others. Very collegial and supportive. My interviewer was nice, but he seemed to have other things on his mind and only asked me a few questions. Hopefully he can still write something good in my regard. From this visit, Vanderbilt moved from one of my last picks up to a much higher place.. Relax and don't worry, it will go smoother than you think." Report Response
