What are your general comments?

"I was surprised to see some of the other interviewees were not very professionally dressed (I was in a suit), so that made me feel a bit more confident. Although one girl left the interview room crying... It really wasn't nearly as horrible as I was expecting. I had trouble relaxing, but the interviewers did their best to put me at ease. I was worried they would ask me difficult questions about my application, but it was close-file and the questions were mostly pretty general. A lot of ethics-related questions, questions about my personality. I mostly resisted the temptation to just start spouting off at the mouth right away and gave myself a second to think before answering--this helped a lot. I also came prepared with some questions to ask of my own--I think this also helped make a favorable impression. I lost a lot of sleep over it, but it really wasn't nearly as bad as I had been expecting." Report Response
