"Overall the experience went very well. The interviewers were very nice, polite, and understanding of the situation. They would go out of their way to help you. The interviews consisted of two blind interviews and one open book. On my open book interview, the interviewer didn't even ask me anything about my file. He read through it and said everything looked good, then asked me what I thought about LSU football and the new coach. Very laid back." Report Response
