What are your general comments?

"Everything was great. The facilities are impressive and of course the research is superb. I wish we had the interview in the morning, but they set it up so that it is the last event of the day. Mine was at 2pm and last an hour and a half (I got along really well with my interviewer). I was worrying about the interview the entire time, but it was so informal and not stressful at all. But then again, I could have just been very lucky." Report Response
