What are your general comments?

"I liked the half closed half open file interview format. I think it gives the interviewers a good chance to evaluate an applicant's interpersonal skills, motivations for the profession, etc. before seeing their numbers. I liked the chance to leave the room and evaluate how my interview was going. I had the chance to think about things that I wanted to bring up in the remaining time (which they asked)."
