What are your general comments?

"The interview experience was informative and not too stressful. You're fed in the morning and you have an opportunity to talk to the other interviewees and the people in your group. That really helps because in the group interview, you feel a lot more comfortable and you don't feel like you're competing with the other interviewees. Dean Brown, again, was incredibly friendly and she made the one-on-one interview so comfortable - it was a great way to start the interviewing and really calmed my nerves for the group interview."
