What are your general comments?

"We toured the Phily location briefly and then took a bus to the NBC. There, we were given tours of the main area, the swine facility and dairy facility. After that, we came back for lunch and began the interviews. There was a hot interviewer and a cold interviewer. The interview was very relaxed. They mainly asked about my experiences and why I wanted to go into the field I did. We were told that we would find out in two weeks and were asked to give contact information ''in case they had any questions.'' I got the call at 7pm Friday that I had been accepted."
