What are your general comments?

"The entire process was so much easier than I expected. They really just want to get to know you and get a feel of what your personality is. They won't ask you the weird ball and glove questions and they don't care about how much you know about genetic engineering or HMOs. My best advice is to MAKE SURE YOU THINK OF GOOD QUESTIONS TO ASK THEM!!!!!" Report Response
