What are your general comments?

"Overall, a very good experience. The day started with an orientation, then the group was split up...half went on a tour, half interviewed. Very nice facilities and very nice people. Nothing too bad about the entire experience...i wish there was more time to get to know some of the interviewees prior to giong to interview...it would have loosened me up and been a little less tense when interviewing. The interviews were with 2 people...one had an open file, the other was closed." Report Response
