What are your general comments?

"8 -10 applicant per session. split into 2 groups, then called randomly for 15-45 min interview. My interviewer was just out of school which helped a lot. He did not look down on me at all as if i wasnt the best canidate, which helped a heck of a lot. Honestly if u show them that u are a better person than you are a student and that u have human qualities like fun, being social, and still showing a love for your field you will do fine in the interview.
