What are your general comments?

"One of my interviewers was a professor/DVM poultry and the other was a successful ultrasound practitioner. Very positive. I left with a huge smile painted on my face. Interviewers were able to branch their own questions from the stories I was telling. I was comfortable enough to tell them I was nervous, and comfortable enough to tell them that a previous set of interviewers had essentially laughed at me when I mentioned what I wanted to specialize in. I was also comfortable enough to talk to them about my previous rejections. They were interested in what I had to say, rather than just ''doing a job.'' They had great senses of humor and spent a good deal of the interview laughing. They seem like great people to work with." Report Response
