What are your general comments?

"A very pleasant day, like I said, everyone was great to me. Real friendly people there, seemed happy to have all of us there. I'm not an SDA, and it seemed to me like there were more than a few others there who were non-SDA's, but I didn't get asked a single question about spiritual issues anyways, and I'm a Christian, so I felt ready for any questions like that! The interviews were pretty relaxed, both just like nice long conversations, my second one even went half an hour over! " Report Response
