What are your general comments?

"I grew up less than half an hour away, so it wasn't too unfamiliar to me. As soon as I parked, i realized i forgot my breath mints, which wasn't too big a loss. There were about 20 interviewees. The assistant dean knew everybody by name and even was able to recall specific details from the files. Lunch consisted of fritos and beans/cheese/guac. Easy on the beans if you have afternoon interviews. Interviewers (both at the VA hospital-accessed via shuttle) were very friendly, both SDA (which I am not). Intervews were very chill, got to know the interviewers pretty well, no big ethical questions." Report Response
