"the interview experience was daunting in two ways. in the morning, while we were pretty apprehensive pre-interview, we had 3 hours worth of information sessions, that while informative, added to the stress of the interview process. in the afternoon, you stay in this room and your interviewers find you, making the experience even more daunting, as you wait to get chosen.
