What are your general comments?

"The interviews were all over the place, but they arranged a shuttle for me and told me how to get places. I still got lost (dang government hospitals!) but they were very understanding. Lunch was good, but the tour was not super informative. I had my student host take me around after my interviews and she showed me the "behind-the-scenes." Overall, I felt really good about it. It was a good first experience." Report Response
