What are your general comments?

"i saw an interviewee ahead of me that was wearing a spaghetti strap blouse, no makeup, and hair threw up in a clip, and like 10 piercings. I cant recommend that look for an interview, and she didnt look happy =( Just be bubbly cheerful charming and sincere - they were so nice and accomodating, i think all they wanted to know in the interview is whether or not i was someone they could tolerate in a small program for 4 years. they just wanted to see if i had a pulse and could be friendly...the interview questions weren't remotely close to difficult."
